The OMG SpaceDTF met in Brussels on June 8, 2017. Here are the meeting highlights:
Mario Merri of the Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems, Mission Operations Information Management Systems attended the Brussels SDTF meeting to discuss the current work areas of both organizations. CCSDS publishes the OMG XTCE 1.1 specification as a Blue Book Recommendation.
XTCE 1.2 proceeds towards adoption/publication. An RTF report is expected by fall of this year. There are still about 27 issue dispositions that have not been voted on, but the RTF is working hard to get a revised specification and schema published.
Amergint Technologies and RT Logic are collaborating on a JSON PSM for GEMS that will be submitted as an RFC at a future meeting.
Goddard Mission Services Evolution Center (GMSEC), not to be confused with the OMG GEMS spec, has produced a middleware API, message definitions, and message exchange patterns for ground system interoperability. GMSEC has drafted a model-based command & control message specification (C2MS) that will be submitted to OMG as an RFC at a future meeting.
CubeSat Reference Architecture
The CubeSat Reference Model, being developed at INCOSE, is nearing completion and will be submitted to OMG as an RFC at a future meeting. The CubeSat Reference Model is a SysML-based framework to aid in the development and deployment of CubeSat systems.
