TC PACKET CCSDS REPORT CONCERNING TELECOMMAND: SUMMARY OF CONCEPT AND SERVICE 2 . 2 . 3 COMMUNICATIONS SECURITY/DATA PROTECTION CONCEPT
For many missions there is a requirement to prevent any intentional or accidental attempts to
manipulate or control the spacecraft by an unauthorized party, including efforts to deny access
to authorized users. Some missions may also have requirements to render the contents of
telecommand messages unintelligible to unauthorized users. The CCSDS has developed a
telecommand data protection concept, which is described in Annex C of this report, that
permits authentication and encryption measures to be implemented when required by a
particular mission. 2 . 2 . 4 TELECOMMAND SYSTEM PERFORMANCE
Performance considerations associated with the CCSDS TC System are discussed in Annex D
of this report. Issue 6 Page 2-11 January 1987 CCSDS REPORT CONCERNING TELECOMMAND: SUMMARY OF CONCEPT AND SERVICE 3 TELECOMMAND SERVICES This section summarizes the services, functions, inputs, and outputs characterizing each layer
of the Telecommand System. The component layers are discussed for both the sending end
(where the user resides) and the receiving end (where the control actions are effected). 3 . 1 TC DATA MANAGEMENT SERVICE
The Data Management Service, Reference , provides the primary user interface with the TC
System. This service enables user requests for command activity to be generated, integrated,
aggregated, translated, and scheduled for delivery to a spacecraft. 3 . 1 . 1 TC APPLICATION PROCESS LAYER
The basic service of the Application Process layer is to provide users with a method by which
they can formulate instructions to control a remote device in space, and to interface those
instructions with the systems which provide the physical delivery of telecommands. Figure 3-1
depicts the activities and interfaces of the Application Process layer.
Inputs to the sending end of the layer take the form of user requests for specific command
actions, plus associated requests concerning any desired overall delivery and execution
conditions. The user command requests are translated into corresponding machine
interpretable "command directives" which are passed to the layer below, along with control
instructions to lower layers that specify the overall configuration of the TC System required for
their delivery. Control instructions are also sent ACROSS the layer (to the peer application
process in space) to define the overall conditions which must exist within that process at the
time of execution of the command directives.
At the receiving end of the Application Process layer, named sets of command directives, and
their associated delivery status information, are received from the System Management layer.
The receiving application process executes the command directives when specified operational
conditions are satisfied: the resulting executed command actions cause changes in the state of
spacecraft instruments or subsystems, which may be observed and confirmed by the user via
telemetered measurements. Issue 6 Page 3-1 January 1987 CCSDS REPORT...
