Unformatted text preview: h a standard does not
preclude other provisions which an Agency may develop. – Whenever an Agency establishes a CCSDS-related standard, the Agency will provide
other CCSDS member Agencies with the following information:
• The anticipated date of initial operational capability. •
– The standard itself. The anticipated duration of operational service. Specific service arrangements are made via memoranda of agreement. Neither this
Recommendation nor any ensuing standard is a substitute for a memorandum of
agreement. No later than five years from its date of issuance, this Recommendation will be reviewed by
the CCSDS to determine whether it should: (1) remain in effect without change; (2) be
changed to reflect the impact of new technologies, new requirements, or new directions; or,
(3) be retired or canceled.
In those instances when a new version of a Recommendation is issued, existing
CCSDS-related Agency standards and implementations are not negated or deemed to be
non-CCSDS compatible. It is the responsibility of each Agency to determine when
such standards or implementations are to be modified. Each Agency is, however,
strongly encouraged to direct planning for its new standards and implementations
towards the later version of the Recommendation. CCSDS 132.0-B-1 Page ii September 2003 CCSDS RECOMMENDATION FOR TM SPACE DATA LINK PROTOCOL FOREWORD
This document is a technical Recommendation for use in developing flight and ground
systems for space missions and has been prepared by the Consultative Committee for Space
Data Systems (CCSDS). The TM Space Data Link Protocol described herein is intended for
missions that are cross-supported between Agencies of the CCSDS.
This Recommendation specifies a communications protocol to be used by space missions to
transfer space application data over space-to-ground or space-to-space communications links.
This Recommendation is developed from the specifications of the Data Link Layer portion of
older CCSDS Recommendations (references [B2] and [B3]), which define essentially the
same protocol and services but in a slightly different context.
