Unformatted text preview: ation does not change the major technical contents defined in references
[B2] and [B3], but the presentation of the specification has been changed so that:
a) this protocol can be used to transfer any data over any space link in either direction;
b) all CCSDS space link protocols are specified in a unified manner;
c) the specification matches the OSI Basic Reference Model (references  and ).
Together with the change in presentation, a few technical specifications in references [B2]
and [B3] have been changed in order to define all Space Data Link Protocols in a unified
way. Also, some technical terms in reference [B3] have been changed in order to unify the
terminology used in all the CCSDS Recommendations that define space link. These changes
are listed in annex C of this Recommendation.
Through the process of normal evolution, it is expected that expansion, deletion or
modification to this document may occur. This Recommendation is therefore subject to
CCSDS document management and change control procedures, as defined in reference [B1].
