The OV-3 addresses operational Resource Flows exchanged between Operational Activities and locations.

Resource Flows provide further detail of the interoperability requirements associated with the operational capability of interest. The focus is on Resource Flows that cross the capability boundary.

The intended usage of the OV-3 includes definition of interoperability requirements.


OV-3 can be represented using:

  • An OV-3 table.
  • An OV-3 role-based table.

    A role-based table represents exchanges between Node Roles (performer usages).

  • An OV-3 spreadsheet report.
