Description of Document

This Recommendation defines the Streaming Tracking Data Service Cross Support Transfer Service (TD-CSTS). The TD-CSTS is a transfer service that allows a spaceflight mission to receive periodic measurements of tracking data as soon as they are generated by a Cross Support Complex or anytime thereafter. The TD-CSTS delivers the tracking data formatted in accordance with the CCSDS Tracking Data Message Recommended Standard (TDM). The TD-CSTS is constructed using procedures and operations defined in the Cross Support Transfer Services Specification Framework and in conformance with the Guidelines for the Specification of Cross Support Transfer Services
