The second phase of the IDC Reengineering program, completed in April 2017, focused on significant enhancements to individual components of the SHI automatic and interactive processing as well as data and product dissemination and software quality assurance.
In January 2018 the IDC initiated, in parallel with the second phase, the scoping and resource estimations for the third phase of its Reengineering program that considers the software development, testing and roll-out of SHI applications. It aims at producing, by the last quarter of 2023, the software based on an upgraded, modern architecture and software framework for SHI applications.
Reengineering Phase 3 (RP3) follows system design techniques based on UML (Unified Modelling Language) and RUP (Rational Unified Process). Technical meetings are periodically held to provide a forum for experts from Member States to review and give feedback on RP3 deliverables.
This technical meeting marks the beginning of Phase 3 of IDC Reengineering and will focus on:
Meeting participants are invited to contribute to the technical meeting by making a 15 minutes presentation related to one of the following themes:
The Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) relies on innovation to enhance the capabilities of the Treaty’s verification regime as well as to help move the Treaty closer to universalization and entry into force. As the seventh event in the CTBT: Science and Technology conference series, SnT2019 will bring together around 1000 scientists, technologists, academics, students, CTBTO policy makers, members of the media and representatives of organizations involved in research and development that is relevant to all aspects of Treaty verification.
More details are provided at www.ctbto.org/SnT2019.
The objective is to continue the process of completing the IDC Validation and Acceptance Test Plan. The focus for this particular meeting will be on reviewing the changes made since the September 2018 meeting and to continue improving the test content. Progress in this regard will be presented at WGB 52.
The Workshop will provide NDCs an opportunity to get involved in activities related to the IDC Progressive Commissioning Plan. The focus will be on the NDCs roles and responsibilities in the IDC Progressive Commissioning as specified in the IDC Validation and Acceptance Test Plan as well as their participation in the IDC Experiments.
The objectives for the Latin America and Caribbean Regional Infrasound Workshop are:
The additional objectives for the Infrasound Training:
