OGC SAA Pilot Overview


The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) SAA Dissemination OGC Pilot demonstrated the feasibility of automating the dissemination and portrayal of Special Activity Airspace (SAA) information (including updates) to National Airspace System (NAS) stakeholders and other external users via OGC Web Services.

The FAA SAA Dissemination OGC Pilot leveraged several OGC standards including Web Feature Service (WFS), Feature Portrayal Service (FPS), (draft) Event Service as well as the Aeronautical Information Exchange Model (AIXM) to support filtering, access, and portrayal of SAA information as well as the notification to subscribed users of SAA updates and schedule changes.

Navin Vembar, Aeronautical Information Management (AIM) Acquisition Lead, FAA: “The FAA SAA Dissemination pilot proves that OGC Web Services can be used in concert with domain-specific information exchange standards to satisfy the operational needs of a wide variety of users. The use of the standards means that all of the stakeholders’ costs decrease while the benefits of the communication are realized quickly.”
