This standard defines the data interfaces between a host aircraft (“platform”) and an Electro-Optic/Infrared (EO/IR) sensor. These data interfaces cover various types of data including: imagery, metadata, command, status, and responses (CSR), geospatial postion, time, test and maintenance, and hand-controller. This standard does not cover mechanical or electrical interfaces.
This document was created to standardize the data interface between aircraft and EO/IR sensors. This activity was initiated at the request of the U.S. Navy in 2009.
