  • Federal Emergency Management Agency/U.S. Department of Homeland Security

    The DM Program provides two upgraded systems supporting responders:

    1. DM-OPEN - message broker offering non-proprietary interfaces for exchanging Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) Messages, Non-Weather Emergency Messages (NWEM), and Emergency Data Exchange Language (EDXL-DE) Messages. EDXL-DE messages transport NIEM IEPD defined messages as well as EDXL HAVE and Resource messages.
    2. DM-Framework - user interface to access messages routed through DM-OPEN and tools to facilitate real time collaboration and communication in response to incidents and disasters.

    Together they support responders by providing transport and visual access for NIEM and OASIS messages within the DM architecture and cross-network/system shareability.
