The Space DTF will meet online Tuesday and Wednesday during the Spring OMG meeting, March 23-27, 2020. The agenda and dial-in/web conference links for the meeting will be posted on the agendas link from the OMG Event web page. Topics of discussion are: drafts for a Display Page Exchange RFP and Operations Archive RFP, NASA's core Flight Services, status of the SDTF specifications and the upcoming CubeSat System Reference Model submission.
Space professionals committed to greater interoperability, reduction in costs, schedule, and risk for space applications through increased space standardization.
The OMG SpaceDTF met in Long Beach on September 10-11, 2019. Here are the meeting highlights:
CubeSat System Reference Model submissions
Reviewed the joint proposal for the CubeSat System Reference Model (CSRM) and provided feedback to the submission team to provide a revised submission. The revised submission has been postponed until the Orlando meeting in June 2020.
There was a discussion of requirements for the draft RFP for the Common User Display Language to define displays that are portable across multiple vendors' satellite control systems. A finalized RFP has not been produced, yet, but the work is important to NASA as it seeks to monitor systems from multiple vendors in its Artemis program for a manned visit to the moon in 2024, with continuing presence at a lunar gateway facility and on the surface of the moon.
Caroloyn Belle from KSAT presented information about their KSAT Lite services that provide cost-effective access to space assets for small satellite developers / experimenters. This was followed up by a discussion about the SDTF goals to reduce the cost of space missions software and how they align with KSAT's interests.
