4.1 PROTOCOL SPECIFICATION
PROTOCOL DATA UNIT 4.1.1 TM TRANSFER FRAME
22.214.171.124 A TM Transfer Frame shall encompass the major fields, positioned contiguously, in
the following sequence:
a) Transfer Frame Primary Header (6 octets, mandatory);
b) Transfer Frame Secondary Header (up to 64 octets, optional);
c) Transfer Frame Data Field (integral number of octets, mandatory);
d) Operational Control Field (4 octets, optional);
e) Frame Error Control Field (2 octets, optional).
126.96.36.199 The TM Transfer Frame shall be of constant length throughout a specific Mission
Phase for any Virtual Channel or Master Channel on a Physical Channel. Its length shall be
consistent with the specifications contained in reference . The structural components of
the TM Transfer Frame are shown in figure 4-1.
1 The protocol data unit of the TM Space Data Link Protocol is the TM Transfer
Frame. In this Recommendation, the TM Transfer Frame is also called the Transfer
Frame, or Frame, for simplicity. 2 The combination of the Operational Control Field and the Frame Error Control Field
is called the Transfer Frame Trailer. 3 The start of the Transfer Frame is signaled by the underlying Channel Coding
Sublayer. 4 A change of Transfer Frame Length may result in a loss of synchronization at the
receiver. CCSDS 132.0-B-1 Page 4-1 September 2003 CCSDS RECOMMENDATION FOR TM SPACE DATA LINK PROTOCOL TM TRANSFER FRAME
