Space Telematics Domain

The Space Telematics Domain consists of the communications protocols by which the applications of the Space Informatics Domain exchange information. It is assumed that nearly all ground communications are commercially based, with more specialized protocols being employed when crossing into space regions. Typically, the Telematics domain is concerned primarily with how data units are moved from place to place rather than how they are converted into user information within the applications. The Telematics domain is the "space analog" of the communications networks by which the Web applications exchange information over the terrestrial Internet.
