Abstract: CCAT-prime will be a 6-meter (20 feet) diameter telescope designed to operate at submillimeter to millimeter wavelengths and located at an exceptional site at 5600 meters (18,400 feet) on Cerro Chajnantor overlooking the ALMA array. The novel optical design of CCAT-prime will deliver a high-throughput, wide-field of view telescope capable of mapping the sky very rapidly and efficiently. The construction phase is expected to lead to first light in 2021. We present the layout of the observatory's control software, currently being developed by a small team of experienced developers at various institutions of the CCAT consortium.
