Heterogeneous Missions Access Architecture Working Group HMA AWG:

The HMA AWG Working Group has been defined by the Agency together with other relevant EO data owners (national agencies, European institutions and industry) for the management of the interoperability interface standards for the European Earth Observation payload data ground segments. The HMA AWG operates under the auspices of the Ground Segment Coordination Body.

The HMA AWG promoted standards are published in the "standards" page of the Open Geospatial Consortium.
