OGC Calls for Participation in Major Interoperability Testbed

15 July 2013. --- The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) has issued a Request for Quotations/Call for Participation (RFQ/CFP) to solicit proposals in response to requirements for the  OGC Testbed 10.

The RFQ/CFP is available at  http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/requests/103.

Responses are due by 5 pm EST on 26 August 2013.

An IP Program and Testbed 10 Q&A Webinar will be held on 6 August 2013. More information will be available at the RFQ/CFP URL above. You are also invited to follow us on  twitterLinkedin or  Facebook to stay updated on the Q&A Webinar, clarifications to requirements, kickoff details, etc.

The OGC Testbed 10 Kickoff event for the CCI and Open Mobility threads (see below) will be held 7-9 October 2013 in Washington, DC. The Aviation thread kickoff will be held 27 September in Frascati, Italy during the week of the OGC Technical Committee Meeting in Frascati.

The Point of Contact is Nadine Alameh:  Email Contact.

The OGC Testbed 10 sponsors are:

  • AGC (Army Geospatial Center, US Army Corps of Engineers)
  • ESA (European Space Agency)
  • EUROCONTROL
  • FAA (US Federal Aviation Administration)
  • GeoConnections - Natural Resources Canada
  • Harris Corporation
  • Lockheed Martin Corporation
  • NGA (US National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency)
  • NOAA National Weather Service
  • USGS (US Geological Survey)

OGC Testbed 10 builds on the outcomes of prior OGC initiatives ( http://www.opengeospatial.org/resource/demos) and is organized around the following threads:

Cross-Community Interoperability (CCI): Increase Geospatial community interoperability by building on CCI OWS-9 work in semantic mediation, volunteer geographic information (VGI), provenance and data quality, and Global Gazetteer. Explore the potential of interoperability in the hydrology domain and utilizing ontologies to more easily share and visualize geospatial data.

Open Mobility: Explore the geospatial standards requirements needed to support the growing emerging mobile environment where client applications are mobile, information services are mobile, and increasingly distributed across cloud infrastructures. The Open Mobility thread will address these requirements while leveraging on the work achieved in the OWS-9 Testbed in the areas of Geopackages and Geopackaging services and new OWS Context encodings.

Aviation: Develop and demonstrate the use of the Aeronautical Information Exchange Model (AIXM) and the Flight Information Exchange Model (FIXM), building on the work accomplished in prior testbeds to advance the applications of OGC Web Services standards in next generation air traffic management systems to support European and US aviation modernization programs.

The  RFQ/CFP includes details of these threads as well as details on participation eligibility, selection process and kickoff workshop information.

OGC testbeds, pilot projects and interoperability experiments are part of the OGC Interoperability Program, a global, hands-on collaborative agile prototyping program designed to rapidly develop, test and deliver proven candidate standards into the  OGC Standards Program, where they are formalized for public release.
