The author presents a comprehensive discussion of three major aspects of the work of the Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems (CCSDS), a worldwide cooperative effort of national space agencies. The author examines the CCSDS space data communications network concept on which the data communications facilities of future advanced orbiting systems will be based. He derives the specifications of an open communications architecture as a reference model for the development of services and protocols that support the transfer of information over space data communications networks. Detailed specifications of the communication services and information transfer protocols that have reached a high degree of maturity and stability are offered. The author also includes a complete list of currently available CCSDS standards and supporting documentation
