Unformatted text preview: nit is the data unit transferred from the Segmentation Layer to the
Transfer layer. The length of the TC Frame Data Unit may vary from one TC Frame to the
next. Its length shall not exceed the maximum allowed length of the Transfer Frame Data
The maximum length of the TC Frame Data Unit depends on whether Frame Error Control is
being used (See Section 22.214.171.124).
With Frame Error Control
Without Frame Error Control 1017 octets
1019 octets The maximum length allowed by a particular spacecraft or ground system implementation on
a particular Virtual Channel may be shorter than the maximum specified here.
The content of a TC Frame Data Unit is defined in Section 3.3.1.
3.2.2 TELECOMMAND SEGMENT The use of a TC Segment is required for any Virtual Channel which has more than one MAP
or which transfers TC User Data Units which are larger than permitted in a single TC Frame.
Its use is optional otherwise, except that if it is used in any TC Frame carried on a Virtual
Channel, it must be used for all TC Frames on that Virtual Channel.

(1) Segment Header. The Segment Header contains the following two fields:
Sequence Flags (Bits 0,1)
This two bit field delimits the higher layer TC User Data Unit by indicating the
sequential position of the TC Segment relative to the TC User Data Unit (e.g., TC
Packet) of which the TC Segment is a part. The flags are interpreted as follows:
1 (2) Bit 1
First Segment of TC User Data Unit on one MAP
Continuing Segment of TC User Data Unit on one MAP
Last Segment of TC User Data Unit on one MAP
No segmentation (one TC User Data Unit or multiple
complete TC Packets) Multiplexer Access Point (MAP) Identifier (Bits 2 through 7)
The MAP facility allows user command data from different sources to be
multiplexed together so that they share the communications capacity of one
Virtual Channel, thus preventing a...
