AbstractTwo of the tools necessary for automated exchange of space mission data sets are, (1) a set of standard formatting rules for the data sets, and (2) a standard computer-readable language with which to describe the data. These two tools are used to create the Standard Format Data Unit (SFDU). The NASA/JPL proposal for creation and utilization of SFDUs is presented, and its relationship to recent recommendations from the Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems (CCSDS) is discussed. Several current and planned implementations of the SFDU concept among major space flight projects will be identified.
