In this article you will understand how to deploy the OpenUTM system and the associated data flow. There are really three pieces of software that required:
In this document, we will setup
Flight Blender follows the ASTM standads for access
The OpenUTM system is a standards compliant system and requires a OAUTH server for managing Identity and Authorization, the ASTM standard requires that JWT tokens be used to access UTM services, JWT tokens can be issued by any server, we recommend using Flight Passport since it gives full authorization capabilites.
When you deploy Blender you will need a environment file. The environment file can be requested via our contact form.
The section below deatils the environment file variables and a short comment on where they are used.
Used to upload data into Flight Blender, see
importers directory in Flight Blender for more information. A JWT Bearer Token is needed to write any data into Flight Blender, this set of environment variables enable you to write data into Flight Blender.
| Variable Key | Description | |————–|:—–:|
|BLENDER_WRITE_CLIENT_ID||The client credentials ID set in Flight Passport|
Used in Flight Spotlight, these settings are used in the Spotlight to enable login into the system. Client ID and Client Secret are standard
Used in Flight Spotlight, these variables are used in Spotlight for basemaps as XYZ tiles.
|BING_KEY||Get a key from Bing Portal|
Used in Flight Spotlight, these variables specify the backend servers for Spotlight to do data processing | Variable Key | Description | |————–|:—–:| | REDIS_URL | - | | TILE38_SERVER| - | | TILE38_PORT | - | | DEFAULT_APPROVED | - |
Used in Flight Blender, these varialbles are used in Flight Blender to ensure DSS connectivity and inter-operability ith other
Used in Flight Blender, these are the key backend services that are used in Blender
|REDIS_HOST||Location of the Redis instance e.g. redis if using Docker Compose|
|REDIS_PORT||6379, if you using default / Docker compose, see also
|REDIS_BROKER_URL||This is used in Django to manage the Celery / task management processes if you are usnig|
|HEARTBEAT_RATE_SECS||This is the refresh rate of the system, normally set to 1 or 2 seconds|
|OPENSKY_NETWORK_USERNAME||Get a Username from https://opensky-network.org/|
You can run Blender by running
docker compose up and then go to
