Next Steps in Aviation Information System Interoperability

The OGC is off to a good start on another year of work with the international aviation information systems community. Earlier this month the tenth annual OGC Web Services testbed activity (OGC Testbed 10) kicked off, with Aviation as one if its main "threads". The AAtS (Aircraft Access to System Wide Aviation Management (SWIM)) Request for Information is out, and the SESAR (Single European Sky ATM Research) MOSIA consortium work is underway.

OWS-9 Demo a big attraction at Redlands TC Meeting

We had extremely strong attendance at the January 2013 OGC Technical Committee Meeting hosted by Esri in Redlands, CA. This was due in no small part to interest in the OGC Web Services Phase 9 (OWS-9) Testbed Demonstration and Exhibition. We’ve never had an OGC interoperability initiative that had so many sponsors, so much funding and such a rich harvest of technology components. OWS-9 sponsorship totaled $2.65 million USD and attracted participant in-kind contributions worth more than $5 million.
