This work gives an overview of the development of a multi-functional airborne management support system within the frame of the Austrian national safety and security research programme. The objective was to assist crisis management tasks of emergency teams and armed forces in disaster management by providing multi spectral, near real-time airborne image data products and a resulting common operational picture (COP). As time, flexibility and reliability as well as objective
 information are crucial aspects in emergency management, the work shows the used components which are tailored to meet these requirements.
