  DISCOS is the control software of the Italian Radio Telescopes and it is based on the Alma Control Software. The project core started during the construction of the Sardinia Radio Telescope and it has been further developed to support also the other antennas managed by INAF, which are the Noto and the Medicina antenna. Not only does DISCOS control all the telescope subsystems like servo systems, backends, receivers and active optic, but also allows users to execute the needed observing strategies. In addition, many tools and high-level applications for observers have been developed over time. Furthermore, DISCOS development is following test driven methodologies, which, together with real hardware simulation and automated deployment, speed up testing and maintenance. Altogether, the status of the DISCOS project is described here with its related activities, and also future plans are presented as well.
