CCSDS Concept Papers

CCSDS Concept Papers are working documents of the Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems (CCSDS), its Areas, and its Working Groups. Note that other groups may also distribute working documents as CCSDS Concept Papers.

CCSDS Concept Papers have no official status and are simply the vehicle by which technical suggestions are made visible to the CCSDS. They are not an archival document series and these documents should not be cited or quoted in any formal document. Unrevised documents placed in the CCSDS Concept Papers directories have a maximum life of nine months. After that time, they must be updated, or they will be deleted. If a document progresses to a CCSDS Proposed Standard, it will be replaced in the CCSDS Concept Papers Directories with an announcement to that effect.
