Unformatted text preview: a standard does not preclude other provisions which a member may develop. o Whenever a member establishes a CCSDS-related standard, that member will provide other CCSDS members with the following information: -- The standard itself. -- The anticipated date of initial operational capability. -- The anticipated duration of operational service. o Specific service arrangements shall be made via memoranda of agreement. Neither this Recommended Standard nor any ensuing standard is a substitute for a memorandum of agreement. No later than five years from its date of issuance, this Recommended Standard 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 Recommended Standard is issued, existing CCSDS-related member standards and implementations are not negated or deemed to be non-CCSDS compatible. It is the responsibility of each member to determine when such standards or implementations are to be modified. Each member is, however, strongly encouraged to direct planning for its new standards and implementations towards the later version of the Recommended Standard.

This Recommended Standard specifies an automatic retransmission procedure to be used by space missions to transfer space application data over a ground-to-space or space-to-space communications link. This Recommended Standard has been developed from an existing CCSDS Recommended Standard that specifies Command Operation Procedure-1 (reference [B2]), which defines essentially the same procedure but in a slightly different context. This Recommended Standard d...
