SMWG -- CSS-Service Management Working Group


About SMWG
English (USA)

The Service Management Working Group exists within the CCSDS Cross Support Services Area to develop standards for requesting Tracking, Telemetry, and Command (TT&C) and Space Link Extension (SLE) services from space agencies and commercial providers of such services. These standards are being documented as SLE Service Management Service Request specifications.

The SLE-SM Service Request specifications are based on the eXtensible Markup Language (XML).
