Abstract: The VOTech design study on future tools started in spring 2005. This project, co-funded by the EC, produces design documents and software prototypes for new VO-compliant end-user tools. It is based on the experience and feedback of precursor projects and on input from the scientific user community. This status report details a number of early deliverables available from the project pages, section DS4. This includes a summary of existing tools, desired future tools as derived from the AVO SRM, requirements for a cross matcher, a simple method for transferring instrumental footprints, use cases for simulations and the evaluation of various technologies.
