The SAE Aerospace Information Report AIR5315 – Generic Open Architecture (GOA) defines “a framework to identify interface classes for applying open systems to the design of a specific hardware/software system.” [sae] JAUS Service (Interface) Definition Language defines an XML schema for the interface definition of services at the Class 4L, or Application Layer, and Class 3L, or System Services Layer, of the Generic Open Architecture stack (see Figure 1). The specification of JAUS services shall be defined according to the JAUS Service (Interface) Definition Language document.
This document supersedes the Revision A publication of AS5684. This revision adds the following backwards compatible features: • Several new units are supported. • type_and_units_enum is made reusable. • Clarification for default_state transitions and default_transitions is provided. • Support for entry and exit actions in derived services is added. In addition, several ambiguities are addressed as well as updates to the RelaxNG schema.
