New VLBI (Very Long Baseline Interferometry) data analysis software (called Vienna VLBI Software, VieVS) is being developed at the Institute of Geodesy and Geophysics in Vienna taking into consideration all present and future VLBI2010 requirements. The programming language MATLAB is used, which considerably eases the programming efforts because of many built-in functions and tools. MATLAB is the high-end programming language of the students at the Vienna University of Technology and at many other institutes worldwide. VieVS is equipped with the most recent models recommended by the IERS Conventions. The parameterization with piece-wise linear offsets at integer hours in the least-squares adjustment provides flexibility for the combination with other space geodetic techniques. First comparisons with other VLBI software packages show a very good agreement, and there are plans to add further features to VieVS, e.g. capabilities for Kalman filtering, phase delay solutions, and spacecraft tracking.
