  The Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) will be a ground-based, 30-m optical-IR telescope with a highly segmented primary mirror located on the summit of Mauna Kea in Hawaii. The TMT Observatory Software (OSW) system will deliver the software applications and infrastructure necessary to integrate all TMT software into a single system and implement a minimal end-to-end science operations system. At the telescope, OSW is focused on the task of integrating and efficiently controlling and coordinating the telescope, adaptive optics, science instruments, and their subsystems during observation execution. From the software architecture viewpoint, the software system is viewed as a set of software components distributed across many machines that are integrated using a shared software base and a set of services that provide communications and other needed functionality. This paper describes the current state of the TMT Observatory Software focusing on its unique requirements, architecture, and the use of middleware technologies and solutions that enable the OSW design.
