This is the Standards Requirements Package for Personal, Transit, and HAZMAT Maydays. It includes the following main components: General introduction to the scope and intent of this package; Message transaction sets; Decomposition of the interfaces; Communications layer description; Constraints; and Data dictionary element definitions and sizes. The package covers the interfaces between the Emergency Management Subsystem and the rest of the architecture for the purpose of sending Mayday messages. The subsystems which originate and send Mayday messages directly to the Emergency Management (EM) are the Vehicle Subsystem, the Personal Information Access Subsystem (PIAS), and the Remote Traveler Subsystem (RTS). The case of HAZMAT related Mayday is covered as a special case of the Vehicle Subsystem Mayday. Two additional interfaces are covered by this package -- the Transit Management Subsystem (TRMS) to EM interface and the Fleet Management Subsystem to EM interface.
