Participate in OGC’s Testbed-16 and shape the future of location technologies

Testbed-16 provides a unique, funded opportunity to join the collaborative research at OGC. Boost your R&D, make contact with major geospatial players, and develop future business opportunities.

8 January 2020: The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is calling for participation in its next major Innovation Initiative, Testbed-16. Funding is available to offset the cost of participation.

Testbed-16 will address some of the hottest geospatial IT topics of this new decade: Earth Observation Clouds; Data Integration, Interoperability & Analytics; Data Containers; and Security. 

To learn more about participating in an OGC Testbed, join us for a Q&A Webinar on the 28th January, 2020. To apply to participate in Testbed-16, respond to the Call For Participation by February 9, 2020. 

OGC Testbeds, an annual activity of OGC’s Innovation Program, are fast-paced, multi-vendor, collaborative efforts where participants follow a rapid prototyping approach to design, develop, and test solutions to sponsors’ location-related problems. OGC Testbeds give room for research and new ideas, while also exploring the “fitness for use” of existing standards and solutions.

OGC Testbed results, in the form of Engineering Reports, are provided to OGC’s Standards Program, where they are reviewed, revised, and potentially advanced as new international open standards. 

Organizations participating in Testbeds therefore gain a ‘first to market’ competitive advantage and early first-hand knowledge of the latest industry standards.

Each year, OGC Testbeds integrate requirements and ideas from a number of different sponsors. This pooling of ideas and requirements creates several symbiotic effects. In response to these ideas and requirements, Testbed-16 will address the following topics:

  • Earth Observation Clouds* and Jupyter Notebooks
  • Data Access and Processing API for Geospatial Data
  • Discrete Global Grid System
  • Aviation
  • Machine Learning
  • Full Motion Video and Moving Features
  • Analysis Ready Data
  • Data Centric Security and Federated Security
  • GeoPackage
  • OpenAPI

* For useful background information on the EOC Architecture developed in OGC initiatives over the last 2 years, see the previously issued OGC Earth Observation Applications Pilot CFP.

Further information, including the official Call For Participation document and details of the January 28, 2020 Q&A Webinar, is available on the Testbed-16 webpage. The CFP submission deadline is February 9, 2020. The project will start with a kick-off meeting scheduled for early April, 2020.

Participation is open to everyone.
