AbstractThe Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems (CCSDS) is an international organization of national space agencies that is branching out to provide new standards to enhanced reuse of spacecraft equipment and software. These Spacecraft Onboard Interface (SOIF) standards will be directed towards a spacecraft architecture, as a distributed system of processors and busses. This paper will review the services that are being proposed for SOIF. These services include a Command and Data Acquisition Service, a Time Distribution Service, a Message Transfer Service, a File Transfer Service, and a CCSDS Packet Service. An Instrument & Subsystem “Plug & Play Service is currently under study, but is included in this paper for completeness.

CCSDS SPACE LINK EXTENSION SERVICE MANAGEMENT STANDARDS AND PROTOTYPING ACTIVITIESPietras, John; Global Science & Technology, Inc. (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2003-10)The Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems (CCSDS) is developing standards for the interface through which spaceflight mission managers request tracking, telemetry, and command (TT&C) and Space Link Extension (SLE) services from TT&C ground stations and networks. The standards are intended for use not just by the spaceflight projects and networks operated by the CCSDS member agencies, but also by commercial networks and networks operated by other governmental agencies. As part of the process of developing the standards, several prototypes are under development. This paper presents a summary status of both the emerging service request standards and the prototypes that implement them.
Standardization of the Instrumentation Hardware Abstraction Language in IRIG 106Hamilton, John; Fernandes, Ronald; Darr, Timothy; Jones, Charles H.; Faulstich, Ray; Knowledge Based Systems, Inc.; Edwards Air Force Base; CSC Range and Engineering Services (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2012-10)Previously, we have presented an approach to achieving standards-based multi-vendor hardware configuration using the Instrumentation Hardware Abstraction Language (IHAL) and an associated Application Programming Interface (API) specification. In this paper we describe the current status of the IHAL standard. Since the first introduction of IHAL at ITC 2006, the language has undergone a number of additions and improvements. Currently, IHAL is nearing the end of a 2-year standardization task with the Range Commanders Council Telemetry Group (RCC TG). This paper describes the standardization process in addition to providing an overview of the current state of IHAL. The standard consists of two key components: (1) the IHAL language, and (2), the IHAL API specification.
