OpenO&M Military Joint Working Group
The OpenO&M Military Joint Working Group works to integrate operational and maintenance data on military platforms ranging from individual combat vehicles to Army Battalions to Naval warships. O&M data integration will enable mission planning and scheduling systems to provide near real-time mission optimization. The Military Joint Working Group is focused on the needs of the U.S. military; members are the US Army Software Engineering Directorate (SED) and the US Navy Total Open Ships Architectures (TOSA) program, MIMOSA, and the OPC Foundation.
The US Army Software Engineering Directorate (SED) provides mission critical computer resource expertise to support weapon systems over their life cycle through acquisition and development , software verification and validation, post development software support, interoperability engineering and testing, computer hardware/software technology, and software/system development.
MIMOSA is a not-for-profit trade association dedicated to developing and encouraging the adoption of open information standards in manufacturing, fleet, and facility environments - information standards which enable collaborative asset lifecycle management.
The OPC Foundation is dedicated to ensuring interoperability in automation by creating and maintaining open specifications that standardize the communication of acquired process data, alarm and event records, historical data, and batch data to multi-vendor enterprise systems and between production devices.
