The company said that the solution has been developed by co-authors Mark Wald and Terry Nielsen of UISOL and James Morentz of SAIC according to utility operations and smart grid standards that include IEC CIM standards and the US Department of Homeland Security's Unified Incident Command and Decision Support (UICDS) standards.
UISOL stated that the solution enables utilities to achieve a new level of interoperability, including the ability to share with public security organisations real-time operational information to improve coordination and effectiveness; no UICDS emergency operations network knowledge needed by the utility side; no utility operations systems knowledge needed by the emergency operations side; CIM message standardisation means utility systems see only one interface; UICDS message standardisation means emergency operations systems appear as one interface; and Middleware solution, therefore no change in daily operational interfaces and no need to learn a new system.
