    An overview is given of the Galileo system, which exemplifies the rigid, time-synchronized systems required by TDM (time division multiplexing). The spacecraft clock is examined, along with some of the rationale for the development of the clock structure and timing to give a sense of the design imperatives for rigidly synchronized systems. Additional subjects include the structure of the science a... View full abstract»

    Established in 1982, the Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems (CCSDS) is an international organization that is staffed by data-handling experts from nearly all of the world's major space agencies. Its goal is to develop standard data-communications techniques so that several agencies may cross-support each other's data flow and thus allow complex, international missions to be flown. Under...

    The Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) designs, builds, manages, and operates science and applications spacecraft in near-Earth orbit, and provides data capture, data processing, and flight control services for these spacecraft. In addition, GSFC has the responsibility of providing space-ground and ground-ground communications for near-earth orbiting spacecraft, including those of the manned space... View full abstract»

    Within the Space Station Freedom Program (SSSP), the communications and dataprocessing capabilities that will be used to handle the operational and scientific information needs will be provided by a space station information and communications system. This system will be composed of a variety of elements, networks, and subnetworks. The networks and how they are interconnected are described. The di... View full abstract»

    The data services that are available between the space station Freedom and the users of Freedom located on the ground are described from a user's perspective. These services consist of path service on the onboard LAN to provide minimum service and maximum throughput for telemetry, ISO protocol services on the LAN to provide robust end-to-end communications and applications services, path and bitst...
