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.
