The CCSDS Collaborative Work Environment (CWE) > CCSDS Secretariat


Welcome to the CCSDS Secretariat Collaborative Work Environment.

The CCSDS Secretariat edits, formats, and publishes CCSDS Recommendations (in their various stages of maturity) and provides one definitive repository for all CCSDS documentation. The Secretariat also assists in scheduling and supporting all CCSDS meetings.

An important role of the Secretariat is to support the CMC process of formal Agency review. The vehicle for such review is the ‘Review Item Disposition’ or ‘RID’. When a document requires formal review, the Secretariat will announce the review opportunity to the CCSDS Agencies and will provide instructions that define how, when, and to whom the Agency comments (in the form of completed RIDs) are to be submitted.

The Secretariat provided a wide range of Web-based information services in support of the technical development work of CCSDS. These include archived mailing lists, document manipulation and sharing services, document libraries, electronic balloting facilities and a system to log and distribute Concept Papers that are derived early in the development process. The Secretariat shall also provide Web-based information services that cater to the two-way flow of information between CCSDS and its customers and industrial suppliers.
