Subject: Re: Regarding the use of OASIS standards in European Commission supported C2-SENSE Project
Dear Chet Ensign,
My name is Mert Gencturk and I am contacting you on behalf of C2-SENSE project (http://c2-sense.eu/) which is supported by the European Community’s 7th Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement number 607729.
C2-SENSE project's main objective is to develop a profile based Emergency Interoperability Framework by the use of existing standards and semantically enriched Web services to expose the functionalities of C2 Systems, Sensor Systems and other emergency/crisis management systems. It is a joint project of 8 partners from France (SAFRAN), Austria (AIT), Italy (LUTECH, REGOLA, Innova Puglia, Regione Puglia), Turkey (SRDC) and Poland (PIAP).
In this project, we have defined several Emergency Interoperability profiles by utilising OASIS CAP, EDXL SitRep, EDXL RM, EDXL HAVE and EDXL TEP standards. On top of these profiles, we have implemented a framework containing several protocol adapters and data integrators that make systems using proprietary formats profile compliant. The outcomes of the project have been assessed successfully in a realistic flood scenario pilot in Puglia region of Italy at the beginning of May. Thanks to the profiles and the interoperability framework implemented in the project, we have managed to make different emergency organizations in Puglia region to interoperate with each other by letting them to continue using their own systems with their own proprietary standard content models. In other words, C2-SENSE project enabled them to exchange information through Web by using OASIS standards without making any major change on their own systems.
I am writing you this e-mail to kindly ask you the possibility of presenting the use of the aforementioned standards in the project and the project's results to OASIS community as part of the standardization activities that we are holding in the project. I will be glad to provide you further details about the project if needed.
Thank you very much for your time and thank you in advance for your response.
