The OGC Announces Call for Participation in MilOps Geospatial Interoperability Experiment
Printer Friendly versionPrinter Friendly


The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) has announced a Call for Participation (CFP) in the OGC MilOps Geospatial Interoperability Experiment (MOGIE). The CFP document is available at: http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/requests/97

Command and Control (C2) Core (https://c2core.gtri.org/) has been an emerging data exchange capability within Department of Defense over the past three years. DoD CIO is now moving toward adopting the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) (http://niem.gov/). C2 Core, which is 93% aligned with NIEM technical standards, will be used as the foundation for developing a Military Operations (MilOps) Domain in NIEM. 

The purpose of this experiment is to ensure interoperability of the MilOps Domain with the OGC's geospatial standards and with tools built on those standards. This experiment will demonstrate that the MilOps Domain model and NIEM v2.1 technical concepts work in combination with OGC standards, such as the Geography Markup Language (GML) Encoding Standard and the Web Feature Service (WFS) Web coverage Service (WCS) and Web Mapping Services (WMS) interface standards.

The OGC members that are acting as initiators of the Interoperability Experiment are:

Expressions of interest for participation are due by 4 March 2013.

Contact Frank Klucznik (Frank.Klucznik@gtri.gatech.edu) for further details and to register as a participant.

Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) is also one of the organizations that will be participating in the Interoperability Experiment. GTRI and other organizations planning to participate will develop tools, implement and deploy OGC service components or client applications, design a test plan, and prepare reports that contribute to the overall objectives of the experiment.

OGC testbeds, pilot projects and interoperability experiments are part of the OGC's Interoperability Program, a global, hands-on collaborative prototyping program designed to rapidly develop and test candidate specifications and then deliver these proven specifications into the OGC's Standards Program, where they are formalized for public release as OGC standards. These initiatives enable users and providers of geospatial technology to share the costs of developing standards that provide a foundation for "future-proof" enterprise architectures. Providers reduce their costs of developing and maintaining interfaces and encodings while gaining industry recognition, the confidence of an initiative's sponsoring organizations, and the market growth that results from open standards.

An OGC Interoperability Experiment is a rapid, low overhead, formally structured OGC-facilitated activity in which members achieve specific technical objectives that further the OGC Technical Baseline.

The OGC® is an international consortium of more than 480 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geospatial standards. OGC Standards empower technology developers to make geospatial information and services accessible and useful with any application that needs to be geospatially enabled. Learn more about the OGC at http://www.opengeospatial.org/contact. See our recent "What is the OGC?" video.
