CCSDS New Work Items (NWI) Announcements

Jul 29
Call for Interest: Optical Communications BoF

CCSDS is interested in forming a BoF to lead to a WG for optical communications. The WG is expected to evolve activities already indicated within the Optical Channel Coding and Modulation SIG (SLS-OCM) [see ] to the upper level of full standardization work. 

This will also follow the recommendation given by latest Interoperability Plenary (IOP3, see ) in regard to the work of the Optical Links Study Group (OLSG) that encourages the member agencies to prepare for optical communications as the next evolution of space communications. 

BoF Meeting will be held within the CCSDS Fall 2013 meeting series that will be held in San Antonio, Texas -USA at Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) between October 28 - October 31, 2013. Precise dates to be announced soon. 

To ‘kick-start’ the BoF, some basic material on what might be done such a WG will be eventually placed on the C​​CSDS Wiki before the CCSDS Fall 2013 meetings (see ).
