Welcome to the SNC WG Wiki

The Secure Network Communications (SNC) for Software Defined Radios (SDR) is a Working Group (WG) operating under Middleware and Related Services (MARS) Platform Task Force (PTF).

1. Rationale and Mission

The SNG WG's mission is the advancement of specifications supporting the development, deployment, operation and maintenance of software technology targeted for software defined communication devices. 

  • Promote UML and model-driven development technology in the SDR field
  • Develop specifications to improve interoperability and exchangeability of software defined communication components
  • Collaborate with other OMG task forces on related or overlapping technology specifications
  • Broaden previous charter with new related technologies e.g. Cognitive Radio, Smart Antenna, Streaming Components, Digital IF, Spectrum Management, etc.
  • Promote Software Radio specifications within the Software Radio Community
  • Maintain liaison with stakeholders of software-defined communication technology outside the OMG

2. Participants

The current members of the Working Group are:

  • OMG members and staff:
    • Jeff Smith – Sierra Nevada Corp
    • Steve MacLaird OMG and Highland Consulting Group
    • Joe Hickey – NASA
    • Louis Handler – NASA
    • Janette Briones – NASA
    • William T. Dark – NASA
    • Char Wales – Mitre
    • Matthew HausePTC
    • Marc Neeley – Object Computing Inc.
