Testbed 13 is the name of the current OGC compatibility program initiative, which has been kicked-off last week during the meeting organized by OGC and held at USGS in Reston near Washington DC. m-click.aero participates in testbed 13 working on the topic dedicated to aeronautical data quality of service.

This year’s Testbed lacks one of the major sponsors from the aviation domain, so the aviation thread only counts four engineering reports dedicated to aviation topics. Three of them are related to the quality of aeronautical data (requirements and specification, formal model and service implementation). The fourth ER deals with the semantic description of geospatial service characteristics.

Having said that, this year m-click.aero was awarded to be the main editor of an engineering report dedicated to architecture, design and development of a common purpose data quality assessment service (DQOS). Such service is planned to be used as intermediary component utilized to assess the overall quality of data, which an observed service instance claims to be capable to provide.

m-click.aero has lots of experiences with aeronautical data validation. On behalf of Eurocontrol and FAA we were working on different aspects of aeronautical data quality and were exploring the way of how to specify the data validation rules and enforce them in the aviation domain. Our award winning aviation data validation platform was developed and put in operational use as outcome of those activities as one of the first aviation data analysis services available on the web. This year however, the focus was set to a more general approach and broader meaning of data quality. Having said that, the theoretical work will be conducted by engineering reports dedicated to the quality of data requirements specification and assessment model, while our report will deal with the implementation part.

We are looking forward for the fruitful, successful collaboration with testbed’s participants, sponsors from FAA and the OGC staff.

m-click.aero GmbH and HFC Human-Factors-Consult GmbH will cooperate in order to provide state of the art situational awareness services for aeronautical traffic management in multiple airport control.

The companies will team up to combine m-click.aero’s expertise in the area of SWIM enabled aeronautical data integration, processing and delivery with HFC’s unique multi-airport control assistance MasterMAN®. With MasterMAN® HFC develops an innovative strategy and optimization tool, which supports air traffic and staff planning in multi-airport control operations. m-click.aero will provide the respective data integration and processing.

This collaboration comes at a crucial time considering that already in 2015 the Swedish ANSP LFV is the first worldwide who perform Remote Tower Services. With the extension of LFV’s Remote Tower Center in February 2017, LFV can remotely control three additional airports from Sundsvall. During this spring, two airports will be connected and remotely controlled from Sundsvall.

The German air navigation service provider DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung equip Saarbrücken Airport with a remote tower solution. The go-live is planned for 2017, with the airports in Erfurt and Dresden to follow. All three airports will be operated remotely from a remote tower center located at Leipzig Tower. Main goal of DFS is to centralize multiple tower operations in this single remote tower center and to maximize the efficient use of the tower controllers.

In Europe alone, there are more than 240 small and regional airports with a traffic density between 100.000 and 2.000.000 passengers per year. This level of traffic density is appropriate for remote control operation and promises the largest efficiency benefits when applying Multi-Airport control.

To control several airports remotely by only one air traffic controller is the next step of development and becomes more and more apparent.

m-click’s Aeronautical Data Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) solution integrates aviation data seamlessly across applications, processes and systems, quickly and cost-effectively – on premise, in the cloud and between aviation stakeholders. It supports open standards such as OGC and SWIM and therefore the interoperability between aviation formats and standards.

Consolidated aviation data provided by m-click.aero help out to to monitor the aviation traffic management process, providing a comprehensive data basis for collaborative decision making and improving situational awareness in the congested Europa’s airspace.

We are glad to announce that our aviation consultant Aleks Balaban is going to hold a short presentation regarding the business opportunities and disruptive business models and technologies in the geospatial industry with focus on the aviation sector. We are very excited to provide our point of view and exchange experiences with discussion participants.

Today we are witnessing tremendous development in the domain of ATM. After years of stagnation thanks to the modernisation programs and new telecommunication, network and web technologies aeronautical service providers, airlines and non aviation online business are all starting to collect, process and distribute the aeronautical, weather, flight and passenger information in order to monetise them.

During the last couple of years, the modernisation programs such as SESAR and NextGen have specified APIs, procedures and operational improvements primary in order to meet the strict ATM goals such as lower aeronautical service costs, capacity increase, and lower environment impact without carrying about innovative business outside of ATM domain. Still, as part of that programs the access to aviation data has partially been liberalised or for the first time even made possible. Thank to the open geospatial standards and APIs the large amounts of aviation data will soon be put in the public or private cloud based data silos and provided to application developers. The monetising potential is vey high considering the world wide amount of flights and passengers being more than one billion annually. Different business models which would utilise that information are thinkable. That are for example special ATM applications for flight optimisation, statistics, improved flight tracking, flight planning for airlines, business aviation and drones and probably the most important for online business – the marketing.

m-click.aero has currently been working on our own, brand new aviation cloud solutions, which for the first step shall include secured private access to the aviation data and cloud-based services for aeronautical traffic management, eventually expanding in other areas of aviation business such as the commercial aviation, cargo, airport operations and others.

We will be working together with Galdos Inc., Harris Corp., Snowflake, 52° North, Luciad and MIT to help to align the OGC standards and the requirements from aeronautical traffic management.

OGC Testbed-12 Aviation Thread Team

OGC Testbed-12 Aviation Thread Team

This year m-click.aero’s activities include several important engineering reports. As part of our editorial and contribution activities we are going to use experiences from SESAR SWIM and investigate the topics of cyber security and semantic enabled descriptions of aviation services. Both topics are very popular these days. Beside them, together with 52° North and Harris Corp. we will evaluate the importance of AMQP 1.0 messaging protocol in conjunction with JMS application interface standard, as well as the capabilities of the brand new OGC PubSub 1.0 standard regarding the asynchronous messaging and compatibility with SWIM communication requirements. Last but not least, on behalf of our sponsor EUROCONTROL we will continue with research on the aviation business rules encoding and evaluation using SBVR and Schematron. This task includes the investigation of applicability of SBVR syntax and semantic for advanced aviation use case scenarios, for example those related to aircraft capabilities and spatial aspects of aeronautical infrastructure. Our vision is to make SBVR an universal, platform independent language for constraints and rules description.

The most popular topic this year, where almost all partners will participate, concerns the long-time expected marriage between FIXM and GML. As readers may already know, current FIXM versions aren’t compatible with GML and therefore not applicable for OGC web services. Other issue addressed during the kick-off meeting was related to the highly desirable mix of FIXM and AIXM entities in aviation documents, which would be applicable, if both standards would be built on the same fundament, the GML standard. GML optimised data repositories with WFS querying capabilities like the m-click.aero WFS Service would also benefit from FIXM/GML. During one of earlier testbeds (TB 10) certain work has been done and an alternative FIXM schema was generated but the result wasn’t satisfactory due to quite large document payloads in comparison to equivalent, non-GML document versions. This year m-click.aero and our partners will continue the work and provide maximum effort to create the ultimately efficient GML compatible XML Schema for FIXIM without significant increase in the payload size. For demonstration purposes, we also plan to provide an extended version of our state of the art aviation data repository with simultaneous support for both AIXM and FIXM data. We all are looking forward for great collaborative work and expect Testbed-12 to become the most successful testbed aviation thread.

The OGC Testbed-12 Aviation Thread is again sponsored by EUROCONTROL and FAA.
