The key issues that will be addressed in the project are:
Although a relative mature market already exists for web servers on mobile devices (such as Windows CE web server for PDAs), no standard solutions are available for web services of mobile PCs with internet connections via satellite. The intended customer base for MAGION are end user organisations, currently using mobile satellite terminals. Although these organisations already have applications installed related to GPS tracking & tracing and data transfer, no integrated solution set is available for deploying web services on their mobile PCs with broadband satellite Internet access.

The work programme contains a design, development, validation and demonstration period of in total 12 months. The project work is divided into 6 work packages; project management, system design, system development, test/validation, demonstration and final report. The project kicked-off on 1st of December 2003, Baseline Design Review was carried out in February 2004, Mid Term Review took place in July 2004, final test report is set for October 2004, and the Final project report is set for November 2004.
According to planning, in December 2004 the MAGION project team succesfully delivered the first version of the Mobile Services Framework package for release. Field tests with the Oil & Gas well test pilot application have been concluded and final adjustments to the Framework and the Gatekeeper have been made. Activities on short term will focus on commercialising the Mobile Services Framework product.
