Project Title

Digital Motion Imagery Applications



Document Number



6.08 Motion Imagery and Applications Working Group

Document Type


Description of Document

Proscribe best practices for video and motion imagery applications over CCSDS links and other standards and protocols such as IP and DVB for space craft to space craft, space craft to ground, and ground to ground distribution scenarios.

Applicable Patents

There are no patent issues for this technology that are known by the CCSDS community

Patent Comments

The MIA documents will include patented technology. However the research from the WG at this time gives us confidence that no programs from space agencies will have to pay any license fees. This is largely because the MIA documents will specify the usage of commercial hardware and software, and license fees apply to those manufacturers, not to end users. Additionally, as far as this WG can determine, the cited technologies are already standardized, and have been verified by ISO as Reasonable and Non Discriminatory (RAND).
