In recent years, USN environment has been developed and used in various fields. In such USN fields, Context Aware technology has been developed into one that enables a computer to determine in an active way and perform a service without user’s needs by making USN more intelligent. However, due to the lack of un-standardized metadata management and Context Aware technology in a sensor network where there are a variety of resources of objects, the development of the Context Aware technology has been delayed. So this study proposed metadata management system that provides Context Aware data suitable for Context Aware and reasoning after gathering/managing efficiently USN environmental resources’ information and then processing the information gathered. Through the metadata management system proposed by this paper, the load of USN Context Aware system can be reduced and more accurate Context Aware can be realized.
