A “TC Segment” is the specific form of the “TC Frame Data Unit” containing a Segment Header. B-2 TC SEGMENTATION LAYER SERVICE SPECIFICATION The services provided by the Telecommand Segmentation layer are as follows: (1) The layer breaks long user data structures from the layer above (i.e., TC Packets, or other user data structures which have been generated by a non-standard higher layer) into pieces (“TC Frame Data Units”) which will fit the data field of TC Transfer Frames, and reassembles them after passage through the Transfer layer. (2) The layer optionally aggregates multiple TC Packets into a single TC Frame Data Unit, which fits into the data field of a TC Transfer Frame and separates them after passage through the Transfer layer. (3) The layer provides a mechanism for multiplexing different TC Frame Data Units together onto a single Virtual Channel, for the purpose of flow control. The Segmentation service described in this Recommendation is designed to support the standard CCSDS telecommand Packetization layer (Reference [3]). It can also provide CCSDS 202.0-B-2 Page B-2 CCSDS HISTORICAL DOCUMENT November 1992 CCSDS HISTORICAL DOCUMENT CCSDS RECOMMENDATION FOR TELECOMMAND: DATA ROUTING SERVICE services to other non-standard higher-layer TC processes as long as the interface requirements of the Segmentation layer are satisfied.
