ECIG Releases CAP EAS Implementation Guide

Jun 9, 2010 10:16 AM

On May 17, 2010, the EAS-CAP Industry Group released version 1.0 of its ECIG Implementation Guide. This release was compiled based on the OASIS CAP v1.2 specification, the IPAWS CAP-EAS Profile v1.0 and public comments. According to the ECIG, the guide is intended to further reduce areas of uncertainty in how an alert will be presented to the public via CAP-EAS, so that originators and distributors of alerts can deliver the intended message to the public, regardless of the vendors or platforms involved.

The ECIG Implementation Guide has not been written to benefit any specific vendor or type of equipment. The goal is general interoperability at a data and messaging level. The guide has been written to facilitate the success of any CAP-to-EAS system, including existing and planned state, local, territorial and tribal systems; the proposed IPAWS system, and National Weather Service system. To that end, in addition to addressing general CAP-to-EAS implementation issues, this guide also directly addresses constraints and requirements of the IPAWS program.
