It may be in the process of being upgraded after a recent disk crash.
Most of our user community never see this
This is a site dedicated to the technical support of those working in the
area of developing and using standards for
Systems). It provides resources for a variety of deployments
who need access to technical information in this area. It provides drafts of
standards, released standards, and critical source code in ASN, XML, XSD, WSDL
as well as various
reference documents required by builders. It is operated as a service by SubCarrier Systems Corp (SCSC)
for the benefit of its clients.
Note: Many parts of this site
are now password protected and limited to SCSC client use. This is due to a lack of
support from the SDOs that depended on it but did not care to cover the
operating costs. If you are a State DOT
and have made an RFP that depended on the content of this this site, such as
the ITS schema repository, then please contact us to make arrangements to provide you with any critical needed information.

is the premier place to ask questions and get answers about how the
standards are to work and how they work with each other. Supported by
all the relevant standards developing communities of ITS, this resource is
the place to seek for an answer to any technical questions. It also the only
place where you will find them all together and be able to see how they are
intended to work that way. Membership is free, (but you need a real
email). Many forums are hidden unless you join and are logged-in. A
great many white papers, proposed standards drafts, and code fragment can be
XML Schema Repository
(Direct file system by FADD)
A Useful ReadMe
(ReadMe file for first time users)
repository is a place where you can get the standards both in-draft form and
in their XML forms along with the supporting standards of other effort
needed to implement them. The XML here is mounted in a
machine-readable form with proper linkages to other XML schemas so that your
can point you favorite tool to directly at it and process complete schema
sets. You can also download what you find here, although in some cases
you need to secure legal rights to the printed documentation from its owner. Where the standards developer allows it, the
actual document in a Word and PDF formats is also posted. Source code
for ASN.1 listing can also be found here. As new standards are issued
and revised, and greater integration is achieved between the efforts, the
results can always be found here. A growing number of deployment
schema sets can also be found here as well.

Mini-Edit is a tool developed to create and maintain the database of entries
used to create each ITS standard as well as exchange and process them.
It also creates the XML schema sets and ASN.1 source code used in ITS. It is freely
available here and is used by both authors and by deployment users to
access the data concepts.

To prevent spam abusers, you must provide a real email address to gain access,
but this will be protected and not shared with anyone including FHWA, nor
will we send you unsolicited mail.
Efforts to rally the SDO community to maintain the
ITS standards forum for the good of
deployments and committees have so far failed to gain traction, hence free
access to this resource has ended. In the
last few years, this has become the premier place to find practical ITS
solutions to using the standards. We have tried for the last 6+
months to quietly point out that this is the most cost effective resource
possible to do this sort of thing and have offered to maintain it for free
if others (presumably FHWA) will cover the monthly bandwidth costs.
With the the decline in standards development work, we can no longer do this
as a community service as we have done for the past decade. Hence, we
have removed or change access policies to many of the
resources found here. We are aware this will cause great pain to
others, and we are seeking a solution to support the deployment community.

Serv3 node is being rebuilt perform for-hire
message set testing.
Please keep in mind that Servers
not damaged, only Serv1. This however this caused DNS, Mail and many
file server systems (such as the ITS XML schema server) to go down in the ITSware domain
A note about the new port scanner for application
programmers. Like the old one, this system detects intrusion attempts
and will lock you out if it sees multiple odd-ball ports, strange URLs and
other odd things. Lock-out is for 24 hours after a half a dozen
violations are seen from your IP. If you see the site seem to go "off
line" you are probably getting trapped. Contact us if you think this
is stopping your use of any experimental ITS software. Normal users of
the site (web, smtp, dns, etc.) will never run into this, only those testing
Restored and working. - We finally seem to have the SMTP filters
working again. There was some legit mail getting rejected while this
got tuned. As before, mail filters for the domain are shared with the
forum so if you get on our "white list" you are good for the rest of the
site. Extreme spam filtering setting are now used.
Mail Services for Forum traffic
Restored and working.
Working again. Auto-posting from other lists (SAE, IEEE, Justice Dept. and
various working committees) now flowing with a 5 min delay.
Still Offline pending rebuild. Disk is now at a clean room for
file recovery work.
/MiniEdit (including web help system)
Mostly Offline, being rebuilt now. Anyone needing the most current
download of the Mini-Edit tool (release build #44) can download the crucial
installer script or just the program and current support files from this

Restored and working.
Hint: Many committee file sites are now
integrated with their ITS
stds forum content, hence you can get the information you seek by
finding the link in the proper sub-forum of
Serv4. In general, the
direct access to the below directories is no longer required. Remember that you
must log-on in order to see all the committers and forums that you
are a part of.
/ ATISworkingdrafts (SAE ATIS committee file site)
Restored and working. However, you need to know the precise name
of the file you want from the directory, browsing is prohibited
Guides (SAE ATIS committee file site)
Restored and working. Please note that the new guides that are being
developed in early 2007 for Weather Users, for DB/5111 Advice as well as
those also being developed by others to reflect IEEE 1512 Usage advise will
all be found on the forum in the
section for each user community.

Restored and working.
The standards forum has many public names, all of which work.
