CCSDS Red Book
A Red Book (RB) is a draft of a CCSDS technical Recommendation.
It describes the technical consensus within a panel and may incorporate unofficial Agency comments received at
the "working level." A Red-Book status indicates that the CCSDS believes that the document is technically mature
and ready for extensive and formal review by appropriate technical organizations within each Member Agency.
Official Member Agency comments about, or approval of, the RB is sought. Several iterations of an RB may occur
in response to iterations in the Agency review process.
