OGC and USGIF invite I/ITSEC attendees to see how open standards integrate geospatial services with Modeling and Simulation

25 November 2013 -- The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) Modeling and Simulation (M&S) Working Group invite all I/ITSEC attendees to attend a demonstration of new standards developments that provide the capability to rapidly discover, transform, and stream geospatial data from Internet sources into Modeling and Simulation applications. The USGIF M&S Working Group Demo is part of the I/ITSEC 2013 Modeling, Simulation & Training Conference, to be held this year in Orlando, Florida. The demonstration will be held in the Warfighter Corner, Booth #2781 in the South Concourse at the Orange County Convention Center on 4 December, from 1300 to 1500 EST. Additional information about the Demo will be available at the Demo Exhibit Booth, Booth #2392 on the I/ITSEC Exhibit Floor.

Demo attendees will be invited to enter into a drawing for a Galaxy Note 10.1 Tablet! See details at the Demo or at the Demo Exhibit Booth. The OGC and USGIF also invite I/ITSEC attendees to attend the I/ITSEC Panel Discussion on Geospatial Environment Database Standards (details below).
The USGIF M&S Working Group Demo simulations will feature two hypothetical scenarios -- a military rescue operation against terrorists in Yemen and civilian oil spill response activity in Hawaii. Attendees will see how implementations of open standards enable:
  • Direct flow of real-world maps, Earth images, sensor data, ocean data, weather data etc. into M&S applications, and
  • Direct flow of M&S generated data out to other applications.
Attendees will have an opportunity to meet the developers and discuss the opportunities that arise from standards-based integration of geospatial systems and M&S systems.
The following corporations and government agencies, most of which are members of both OGC and the USGIF Modeling and Simulation Working Group, have contributed data, hardware, models and simulation applications for the demo:
  • CACI
  • CAE
  • Compusult
  • DigitalGlobe
  • Envitia
  • exactEarth
  • VT MAK
Earl Miller, USSOCOM, will give the closing talk at the demo.
Some of the demo participants will be speaking at a special Panel Discussion on Geospatial Environment Database Standards. This panel discussion will be held onThursday 6 December from 1030 to 1200 in Room S320GH in the South Concourse at the Convention Center. Speakers will include:
Dr. Gary Allen
Associate Director Data, DoD Modeling and Simulation Coordination Office
Briefings from Service/Component geospatial database producers
Lieutenant Colonel Johnny Powers, USA
Army Synthetic Environment (SE) Core

The United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) was founded in 2004 as a non-lobbying, nonprofit educational foundation to promote the geospatial intelligence tradecraft and develop a stronger community of interest among government, industry, academia, professional organizations, and individuals. The Foundation and its participants share a mission focused on the development and application of geospatial intelligence to address national security objectives. For more information about USGIF, visit  www.usgif.org.
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is an international consortium of more than 480 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geospatial standards. OGC standards support interoperable solutions that "geo-enable" the Web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT. OGC standards empower technology developers to make geospatial information and services accessible and useful with any application that needs to be geospatially enabled.
