LBTI is a thermal imager and a nulling interferometer to be installed on the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT). Here, we present the distributed component architecture model and its simple yet powerful software structure designed to complement the LBTI hardware model that comprises pyramid wave front sensors with its control electronic universal beam combiner, phase sensor, science imager, and all housekeeping duties to run the cryogenics, compressors, vibration monitors and the interface to the telescope control systems.
