Dear OASIS Members,
All OASIS Emergency Management members are encouraged to join the next EM Adoption Events & Demos Sub-committee (E&DSC) meeting for a discussion on the future of OASIS Emergency Interoperability Demonstrations and Exercises. With support for DM-OPEN 1.0 ending July 1st and the replacement of IPAWS-OPEN 2.0, it is the E&DSC’s goal to poll members in the hopes of finding out how many plan to implement IPAWS-OPEN 2.0 (and when). Since our most recent demonstrations integrated DM-OPEN 1.0, it is vitally important for us to gage how many members will be ready and available to support any future demonstration using IPAWS-OPEN 2.0.

In order for the E&DSC to continue their support of interoperability demonstrations in 2011, it is essential that vendor applications support the new interface. In addition, EAS encoders must support CAP-EAS by September of this year. EAS encoders will be polling IPAWS-OPEN for the EAS-CAP messages. If members are seeking to participate in EAS, they will need to support CAP-EAS, as well as IPAWS-OPEN by the September timeframe.
Please join us on Thursday, 21 April for a brief discussion on the above. We look forward to your participation. (Conference call information are listed below.)
Kind regards, Jane
