Common service involved in the Geo Digital System (GDS) of Airbus DS Geo SA

Geo Digital System

Customer: Airbus Defense and Space Geo (ADS-GEO)

Programme: Geo Digital System

Supply Chain: ADS-GEO > CS Group PDA


Objectives for Notification Service are :

  • To receive notifications through Message Queuing Common service,
  • To process and if necessary to format the notification requests from patterns (instantiation of message model, elements by using key/value and names of recipients)
  • To transfer the processed and instantiated notification requests to corresponding GDS technical services to deliver the notifications.

Main Picture

CS Group responsabilities are as follows:

  • Design, Development, Support service for deployment and use

The features are as follows:

  • Management of media for notifications delivery (Mail, SMS, WebHook)
  • Multiple entry points: Message Queuing service, API Rest (external service), Mailbox service (legacy mails), MMI (admin/supervisor accounts)
  • Monitors notification requests (error handling, notifications status management, logs management)
  • Authentication of users from service IAM and LDAP
  • MMI for system and notification request monitoring, templates and notification definitions creation, new notification requests

Project implementation

The project objectives are as follows:

  • Notification Service processes and delivers in different media all notification requests of GDS sub-systems and others services of system for external or internal users

The processes for carrying out the project are:

  • Continuous integration

Technical characteristics

The solution key points are as follows:

  • Structure based on container platforms (dockers)
  • Independent software components provide great modularity
  • Web generic MMI
  • RESTful web services
  • Deployment with Kubernetes on a Airbus DS Geo SA cloud
