Representation of Tactical Situation Objects
The aim here is to provide a lightweight protocol for situation awareness in emergency response. The protocol shall present table-driven attribute values, including types of action, types of resource, relationships between items, etc.
The vocabulary inherits from the NATO Multilateral Interoperability Programme initiative (http://www.mip-site.org/). It is currently represented in a tabular document, with some tens of tables. Some tables have tens of entries. Base definitions are in English, as examplified below:
2.5 URGENCY element This is a proposal, consistent with OASIS description of the civil protection domain. It is consistent with the CAP protocol v1.0 (cap.alertinfo.urgency.code). The code denotes the urgency of the subject event of the alert message. Acronym Level Definition IMMEDI Immediate Responsive action should be taken immediately EXPECT Expected Responsive action should be taken soon (within next hour) FUTURE Future Responsive action should be taken in the near future PAST Past Responsive action is no longer required UNKNWN Unknown Urgency not known
