Object Management Group Issues Request for Proposal for a Command and Control Navigation Interface Standard
Standardization would reduce cost and integration risks between a navigation system and the components of a military C2 system

Needham, MA – January 26, 2018 – The Object Management Group® (OMG®), an international, open membership, not-for-profit technology standards consortium, issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) for a new Command and Control Interface for Navigation (C2INav) technology specification. In order to operate, military Command and Control (C2) Systems must communicate with various sensors and systems that produce navigation, location and stabilization data. Currently, these naval, land, and air-based C2 systems implement separate interfaces and sensor-data formats with each data point and sensor provider complicating integration.

The RFP is seeking a common means of receiving data from a variety of systems and sensors that provide navigation-related data. Both members and non-members of OMG may show their interest in participating in the process by submitting a Letter of Intent by May 3, 2018. In order to become a submitter, individually or as part of a submission team, companies must become members of OMG by the initial submission deadline of November 12, 2018.

One of the RFP authors and OMG member, Matthew Wilson, Vice President and Principal Engineer at SimVentions said, “By participating in this RFP, vehicle/platform systems integrators will help ensure that suitable data structures and technologies are standardized to enable effective integration for their use. Sensor providers will be able to ensure that their types of sensor data are sufficiently represented in the specification and that they can influence the standards toward compatible designs that align with their technology.”


Submitting to the C2INAV RFP will provide a common means of receiving data from a variety of systems which provide navigation-related data.
