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.
