Subject: EU Tactical Situation Object

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to draw your attention to some information resources about the 
European Union's "Open Advanced System for dISaster & emergency 
management" (yup, OASIS), http://www.oasis-fp6.org/ and its Tactical 
Situation Object (TSO) http://www.tacticalsituationobject.org/

I have found a couple of documents which detail this specification: 


If you have trouble getting through, I can either post the documents to 
our repository as resources or send them as attachments. Note that the 
first of these documents refers to the EU OASIS project as Open Advanced 
System for CrisIS Management (OASIS). As the publication date (Spring 
Interoperability Workshop 2008 Providence, Rhode Island) and the fact 
that it has a University of Virginia co-author, shows, this whole 
project and the TSO itself, is not a recent effort. Too bad we didn't 
hear about it sooner, but that's life.

Regardless, I think we should explore it and perhaps even make the whole 
dual OASIS situation more interesting by adopting it ourselves if it 
fits into our set of standards.

Of course, we have a lot of study to do first, but this has now come up 
in the final review of the NCOIC All Hazards Alert and Warning (AHAW) 
Capabilities Pattern in the Net-Enabled Emergency Response Integrated 
Project Team (NEER-IPT), so I will be investigating it further and will 
almost certainly incorporate it into the AHAW pattern.
