SMC-IT – OMG Day: July 29, 2021

Digital Twin Consortium Introduces OMG Space Task Force Mini-Workshop

OMG Space Task Force Mini-Workshop at SMC-IT

Join the Digital Twin Consortium and Object Management Group at the 8th IEEE International Conference on Space Mission Challenges for Information Technology (SMC-IT 2021).

With the shift of government-led space projects toward deep-space missions, a commercial space industry is emerging to build the future of spaceflight and other activities in low-earth orbit. The space industry, whether working with the government or on new commercial projects, needs technical standards in order to focus on innovating new technologies while reducing associated costs, schedules and risks.

An industry that once moved to the cadence of government projects – where innovation was measured in years – is now looking more like a start-up industry in need of the insights and experience of experts in government, industry and academia who help define standards.  We're honored to have been invited to present two mini-workshops, where the Digital Twin Consortium presents the work being done within OMG's Space Task Force.

10:10am  
Keynote –OMG Space & Manage Programs Overview
Steve MacLaird, Senior Vice President, Government & Industry Strategy, Object Management Group

The Object Management Group (OMG) SVP, Steve MacLaird, Colonel (Ret) USAR, will provide an overview of OMG, OMG Managed Programs to include the Digital Twin Consortium (DTC), Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) as well as others followed by an introduction to a number of Space Domain Standards that include ground, Launch, On Orbit, CubeSat Systems Reference Model, (CSRM) and a terrestrial /space standard.


11:00am
OMG Standards in Space
Brad Kizzort, Chief Technologist for the OS/COMET Product Group, Peraton

This session will provide an overview of the existing OMG Space Domain Task Force specifications and their relevance to Digital Twins and the correlation to other modeling & simulation standards used in space applications.


Lunch Sessions – see Main Agenda


1:00pm
The CubeSat System Reference Model™ (CSRM™) & Advancing It to Mission Engineering
David Kaslow, Project Lead for CubeSat System Reference Model, DEKaslow Consulting, LLC 

The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) Space System Working Group (SSWG) has created the CubeSat System Reference Model (CSRM), a representation of the logical architecture of a CubeSat system.  The CSRM is based on Model-Based System Engineering principles, is System Modeling LanguageTM (SysML TM) compliant, and is hosted in a graphical modeling tool.  The CSRM has been submitted to the Object Management Group as a CubeSat specification.  We have begun to evaluate enhancing the CSRM in support of Mission Engineering.


2:00pm
Space Telecommunications Interface (STI)
Louis Handler, Computer Scientist, John H. Glenn Research Center, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and Jeff Smith, Ph.D, Chief Systems Engineer and Lead of E2 set, Sierra Nevada Corp (SNC)

This presentation describes the evolution of the software-defined radio (SDR) architecture from the Software Communications Architecture (SCA) and OMG's SWRadio to the Space Telecommunications Radio System (STRS) standard to accommodate the challenges of the space environment such as having autonomous radios with the size, weight, and power restrictions of launch. After about seven years of testing on the international space station, the lessons learned caused further evolution into the Space Telecommunications Interface (STI), which included conversion from UML to SysML, that was adopted by the OMG.


2:50pm
Q&A Wrap Up
Steve MacLaird, Senior Vice President, Government & Industry Strategy, Object Management Group
