Chapter Summary

The major space agencies of the world recognize that there are benefits in using standard techniques for handling space data and that, by cooperatively developing these techniques, future data system interoperability will be enhanced. As the space age evolved in the 1960s and 1970s, there was increasing interest in stimulating international cooperation as a way to enhance space exploration. Four types of participation exist within the Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems (CCSDS): Members, Observers, Liaisons and Associates. Within the new CCSDS organization, six broad discipline 'Areas' were created such as system engineering services, mission operations and information management services, cross support services, spacecraft onboard interface services, space link services and space internetworking services. Resources for space standardization work are shared by national, regional, and international standardization efforts.
