RFC 4688       URN Namespace for ASD Specification 1000D    October 2006

1.  Introduction

   Specification 1000D [1] (S1000D) is an international specification
   for the procurement and production of technical publications.  The
   current issue of the specification has been jointly produced by the
   Aerospace and Defence Industries Association of Europe (ASD;
   previously AECMA, European Association of Aerospace Industries) and
   the Aerospace Industries Association of America (AIA).  The
   specification is used worldwide by a variety of commercial and
   government entities for the development of technical documentation.

   The specification adopts ISO, Computer-Aided Acquisition and Life-
   Cycle Support (CALS), and W3C standards to promote document
   standardization in which information is generated in a neutral
   format.  Compliant documentation generated using the specification
   can be processed on different, and often disparate, IT systems.  It
   is this feature, added to the concept of modularization, that makes
   the specification acceptable to the wider international community.

   Portions of S1000D define a resource coding system allowing resources
   created under the specification to be uniquely identified in global
   environment.  To provide for the creation of a web-based resource
   management system, ASD would like to assign URNs [2][3][4] to
   resources created under the specification in order to retain unique,
   permanent, location-independent names for these resources, in
   addition to providing a framework for resolution of these resources.

   For more information about ASD and S1000D, see http://www.s1000d.org.

   This namespace specification is for a formal namespace.
