Dear Steve,

in the context of the CCSDS-OMG liaison I would like to inform you that 
during the last CCSDS Technical Meetings in Gaithersburg (09-13 April 
2018) reservations had been raised on the proposed OMG standard (RFC):

Satellite Command & Control Message Specification (C2MS).

In particular, three space agencies via their members in the CCSDS 
Spacecraft & Control Working Group have identified notable overlaps 
between the above perspective document and the on-going work of the 
working group on Mission Operations (MO) Services. These Space Agencies 
(CNES - French Space Agency, DLR - German Space Agency, and ESA - European 
Space Agency) are producing a Technical Note to substantiate the overlap, 
which will be available in the second half of June. 

Clearly, in the spirit of the liaison, both CCSDS and OMG should strive to 
avoid overlaps and duplications, in favour of reciprocally adopting 
relevant standards, as already done for instance by the CCSDS with the 
adoption of the OMG XTCE standard.
