Integration of third party Remote Sensing systems with Intterra's Airborne Intel Tool provide near-real-time
information to operations and partner agency personnel on wildfire and public
safety events. The Airborne Intel Tool and the Remote Sensing systems have been
designed to allow a user to monitor and receive intelligence from a Remote
Sensing mission as well as to access data from previous missions. A variety of video, imagery and vector 'tactical' products can be integrated.
Amazon S3 file sharing system is used by Remote Sensing and Intterra to
exchange data. The Amazon S3 system requires an authorization credential issued
by Intterra for data exchange. Credentials
will be sent to the Remote Sensing provider by the Intterra account
manager/Integrations specialist during their onboarding period.
This version of the ICD includes July 2020 enhancements for -
- 'GSTOP' file naming convention - An Option B file naming convention that closely aligns with the GSTOP (GIS Standard Operating Procedures). The file name passes through to products downloaded from Intterra's Airborne Intel Tool.
- Supports additional Vector product types - isolated heat, scatter heated, structure, Infrastructure, water source, and route.
NOTE: The naming convention 'closely aligns' with GSTOP, but isn't identical since 1) we have options for products that are not in GSTOP (structure, Infrastructure, water source, and route), 2) some GSTOP naming (not all) includes the agency/unit code - which is typically not known by the mission operators when they send it to us, and 3) GSTOP uses local time with no time zone designator, which is not suited for an aircraft that could be in multiple time zones in a single mission (so we used UTC and the file name timestamp includes a Z). The goal was to get something close enough so that if it is placed on an ftp site, people will have some understanding of what it is.
