The Open Digital Incubator Initiative (ODI) is a collaboration on a test framework focusing on standardized digital services for the maritime domain.
The overall purpose of ODI is as follows:
Many different kinds of digital services could be considered for the ODI – however, initially the services considered will be Technical Services associated with Maritime Services in the context of e-navigation as defined by IMO.
Furthermore, the initial suite of services will follow the following guidelines:
IEC 63173-2 SECOM – Secure exchange and communication of S-100 based products
As platform for authentication and service discoverability (as described in G1161) – the Maritime Connectivity Platform will be used. Other components of the ODI may change over time depending on which services are being tested.
Over time, the digital incubator may have the potential to become reference implementations of digital/technical services. Software components of the ODI should all be open source.
