OGC’s Military Pilot Project, Phase 1, sponsored by the US Army Engineering and Development Center (ERDC), was a collaborative effort that contributed to the operational validation of interoperable commercial geoprocessing products for the defense and intelligence domain. MPP-1 addressed the problem that no single vendor’s commercial products meet all the diverse requirements of defense geoprocessing, and the diverse products from different vendors that might meet these requirements don’t, without OGC's standards, interoperate.
The GW IE was designed to: (1) test the use of both WaterML 2 and Groundwater ML (GWML) with the SOS and WFS OGC web services, respectively, (2) test compatibility with industry software clients, and (3) to facilitate sharing of massive volumes of sensor-based water level observations and related water-well features across the Canada and USA border.

This proposed OGC Interoperability Experiment (IE) is intended to create and test a candidate specification for a Sensor Alert Service (SAS). This work is part of the ongoing OGC Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) effort.

The Web Mapping Testbed Phase 2 (WMT-2) expanded on work done in WMT-1. It resulted in more federal data coming on-line using WMT protocols and laid a foundation for OGC Pilot Projects that tested and demonstrated the new capabilities. WMT-2 resulted in improvements to GetFeatureInfo, GetMap, and GetCapabilities, the basic elements of the Web Map Server Interface Specification. It also resulted in a proposed service interface specification for accepting multi-dimensional query requests and responding with portrayals (symbolized graphics) of the results (with associated legends).
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) SAA Dissemination OGC Pilot demonstrated the feasibility of automating the dissemination and portrayal of Special Activity Airspace (SAA) information (including updates) to National Airspace System (NAS) stakeholders and other external users via OGC Web Services.
