OGC Calls for Industry Input on Multi-INT Decision Fusion

WAYLAND, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Apr 21, 2010 -- The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC®) has issued a Request for Information (RFI) ( http://portal.opengeospatial.org/files/?artifact_id=38987) to solicit industry input into the second phase of a Fusion Standards Study. Phase 2 of the study focuses on Decision Fusion. Input from the RFI will influence planning for the OGC Web Services, Phase 8 (OWS-8) Testbed. OGC also seeks to establish alliances with other Standards Development Organizations (SDOs) having standards work relevant to fusion.

Decision Fusion, as described in the RFI, provides analysts an environment of interoperable services for situation assessment, impact assessment and decision support, based on information from multiple sensors and databases, e.g., multi-INT sources. The study includes recent advances such as social networking for decision fusion. Though the focus of the study is on military intelligence ("INT"), decision fusion is equally relevant to business intelligence, urban planning, and many other domains.

This RFI is based on requirements and contributions from OGC Member organizations -- in particular the National Geospatial-intelligence Agency (NGA) -- and industry recommendations from Phase 1 of the Fusion Standards Study.

The RFI contains a review of requirements and existing standards for decision fusion in several domains. Responses to the RFI will be reviewed during a workshop in July 2010.

Responses to the RFI are requested by June 11, 2010. The RFI includes instructions for how organizations can respond. Please contact George Percivall at Email Contact with any questions.

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

The OGC® is an international consortium of more than 390 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geospatial standards. OpenGIS® Standards support interoperable solutions that "geo-enable" the Web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT. OGC Standards empower technology developers to make geospatial information and services accessible and useful with any application that needs to be geospatially enabled.
