Welcome to CCSDS.org
Founded in 1982 by the major space agencies of the world
, the CCSDS is a multi-national forum
for the development of communications and data systems standards for spaceflight.
Today, leading space communications experts from 27 nations collaborate in developing the most well-engineered space communications and data handling standards
in the world.
The goal is to enhance governmental and commercial interoperability and cross-support, while also reducing risk, development time and project costs.
More than 800 space missions
have chosen to fly with CCSDS-developed standards
, and the number continues to grow.
