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. CCSDS 232.1-B-2 Page ii September 2010 RECOMMENDED STANDARD FOR COMMUNICATIONS OPERATION PROCEDURE-1 FOREWORD
This document is a technical Recommended Standard 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 Communications Operation Procedure-1 (COP-1) described
herein is intended for missions that are cross-supported between Agencies of the CCSDS.
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
This Recommended Standard d...
