the current post serves the purpose of announcing the publication of an updated version for the specification proposal of the JANUS Emergency messages and eventually trigger fruitful interactions.
The first version of this proposal was published in R. Petroccia, J. Alves and G. Zappa, "JANUS-Based Services for Operationally Relevant Underwater Applications," in IEEE Journal of Oceanic Engineering, vol. 42, no. 4, pp. 994-1006, Oct. 2017. doi: 10.1109/JOE.2017.2722018.
More efficient binary encoding of Nationality, Lat./Long., True Heading data fields.
We plan to release a sample implementation (a plug-in of the JANUS-C), but in the meanwhile, we welcome all your feedback.
Please review the proposed specification and let us know about any comments, suggestion, corrections.
Thinking of this year's JANUS agenda, having part of the JANUS Community testing the transmission and reception of the Emergency messages (and other services) during the upcoming JANUS Interoperability Fest 2019 in November, seems like a reasonable idea!
