Austro Control iSWIM Capability Infrastructure

Implementing Partners

Leader: Austrocontrol


SWIM (System Wide Information Management) comprises of standards, infrastructure and governance enabling the management of information and its exchange between operational stakeholders via interoperable services. Globally, this Implementation Project aims at implementing the infrastructure part of SWIM - currently restricted to the SWIM Yellow Profile. For this purpose, Austro Control will implement an Enterprise Service Capability that enables the interconnection of service-oriented systems within Austro Control as well with European SWIM. Interconnectivity will be provided by a "SWIM Connector", which will be the access point to connect the system environment to other SWIM-enabled partners. The definition of the optimal deployment architecture for SWIM in the Austro Control environment is part of this project.

The Implementation Project's duration is quite long since a continuous evolution of the SWIM Connector is expected as internal and external requirements evolve:

Internal: Requirements stemming from the deployment of SWIM services related to other PCP elements;
External: The deployment of SWIM Governance and the standardisation of SWIM elements (e.g. SWIM Yellow Profile) will at least partially re-shape SWIM and thus have an impact on the deployment.

This Implementation Project aims at covering approximately 66% of the gap in family 5.2.2 for Austria. The remaining gap will be closed with the implementation of the SWIM Blue Profile, once its specification is available. This implementation will take place outside the scope of this project.
