domain level Task force


OMG Groups


The OMG Space Domain Task Force (Space DTF) was established to answer a call by industry professionals for greater interoperability as well as a reduction in costs, schedule, and risk for space applications via increased standardization. Created to clarify space, satellite and ground systems requirements, the Space DTF’s goal is to provide a transparent, space-standards development environment that is open to all participants.


The Space DTF encourages the use of OMG specifications in order to create standards in the space technology field. In particular, it encourages the development and use of Model Driven Architecture® (MDA®).

  • Clarify space, satellite and ground system requirements
  • Provide a transparent space standards development environment, open to participation by all.
  • Encourage the development and use of Model-Driven specifications that allow future-proofing of space systems.
  • Encourage continued space industry member participation to leverage existing OMG specifications.
