Dear Mike

My flight to Francfort has been cancelled due to heavy snow there. I was supposed to be on same flight as Juan Miro from Germany to Orlando. No alternate route was possible with LH starting from Toulouse.
Now, I am booked tomorrow on the same flights thru Francfort and I will arrive tomorrow evening, if weather conditions improve in Germany. So far, the forecast is not that good…
At least, I can not participate in the 1st day of the CMC meeting. I will keep you informed for tomorrow . You will know before you start the meeting if the situation is same for me on the next day too.

In the agenda of the first day, there are items and discussions of interest for me ; of course, the CESG report cannot be delayed but maybe, some other items might be switched with next day(s) ones ; for instance the resources topics, the"big picture", the ICPA and the IOP3 discussions. On some of these discussions, you also need Nestor who is in similar situation as mine. Maybe margins exist around the SC13 timeframe…
I leave to you and our colleagues in the CMC to decide which arrangements can be made.
Of course, I understand if you cannot accommodate my suggestions and we will handle that another way.

Sorry for the inconvenience and uncertainties.

Best regards

Myflight to USA has been cancelled due heavy snow in Frankfurt. I was flying via Chicago and staying 5.5 hrs within the plane. Once out I tried to catch the delayed flight to Orlando (where Juan is) but was too late.
I will arrive tomorrow afternoon. I can not participate in the CESG / CMC meeting

CMC Colleagues:  This is one more short but important piece of information.

For KSC badging and access through security, you need to bring two forms of identification (preferably with photos on them).  We have been told that it will be sufficient to have your passport and your driver’s license issued by your government.

Peter – We have been told that your UK drivers’ license should be sufficient even though they don’t have photos.

That’s all the news for now.  We will see everyone at KSC.

Best regards,

Here is some new information, about the tour on Thursday morning, 13 December.  So far, it seems that most attendees are planning on attending the KSC tour.  If we expect you to attend, the attendance and bus list (attached) shows green for you on Thursday.  If this is wrong, and you are not attending, please let us know.

Here is some important basic information (more info is on the attached SITE TOUR agenda).

·         Guests must be attired in long pants (No Capris) and closed toed, flat shoes, no tank tops

·         No sharp objects, backpacks, or coolers permitted

·         Cameras are OK

·         You will have to wear construction site Hard Hats (they will be provided)

·         We plan to go to the 195 foot level (60meters) of the launch tower.  If anyone has trouble with high places, tell the tour guide and they will keep you at a lower level.

This should be a very interesting tour, especially if you have never been to KSC.

(Corrected ICPA link error)

Dear CMC colleagues:  To prepare for the CMC meeting at Kennedy Space Center, here is some logistics info.  Most of this is info that you should have already seen, but I am providing the critical instructions again, just before the meeting.

Security Arrangements:  Look at the attached spreadsheet.  Security info has been submitted (and we believe, approved) for the Foreign National visitors highlighted in green.  If you are not on this list, we do not have security info for you, and you will not be able to get a badge for access to the meetings.  Please let us know ASAP if you expected to attend, and you are not on this list.

Inputs Needed:  As you know, attendees must drive to the KSC Press Accreditation Area each day and take the NASA bus to the meeting place.  To insure we know who to expect to ride the bus on which days, please provide any corrections to the attached spreadsheet.  Green indicates that you will ride the bus on that day (Mon-Fri).  White indicates you will not ride the bus.  We will check off everyone on each day with green.  This will help us to insure the bus does not leave without you.

Basic CMC  Logistics info, briefly stated:  (More details on CCSDS Website, Click Here<http://public.ccsds.org/meetings/2012Fall/default_cmc.aspx>)

·         Fly into Orlando airport, and drive to the hotel.  The drive to the hotel area of Cocoa Beach is about 45 minutes.

·         To attend the meeting, Foreign visitors must drive to the Press Accreditation Area and catch the bus to the meeting.  For driving directions, Click Here<http://public.ccsds.org/meetings/2012Fall/KSC_Driving_Instructions.pdf> (or on CCSDS website).

·         Mike Kearney will be on the bus.  Call +1-256-361-5411 (mobile) if you need to coordinate for catching the bus.

·         Everyone should already have hotel reservations, but a hotel list is on the CCSDS website.

o   Note minor changes on page 63

o   The live report during the meeting will assume you have reviewed this and have composed questions.

·         The Secretariat’s package in the CMC folder.  Click Here<http://cwe.ccsds.org/cmc/docs/Forms/AllItems.aspx?RootFolder=%2fcmc%2fdocs%2fCMC%20Secretariat%27s%20Packages%2f2012%20Fall%20%2d%20Kennedy%20Space%20Center&FolderCTID=&View=%7bD5DD30F7%2d53FC%2d45B9%2d8B93%2d709B280A475B%7d>.  (requires CWE login).  Especially look at Action Items in case your agency has some.

·         The IOAG-CCSDS Product Agreements:  Click Here<http://cwe.ccsds.org/fm/Lists/Projects/IOAG.aspx>.

·         The draft letter to heads of agencies (Click here<http://cwe.ccsds.org/cmc/docs/CMC%20Secretariat%27s%20Packages/2012%20Fall%20-%20Kennedy%20Space%20Center/Draft%20generic%20letter%20to%20heads%20of%20agencies%20v2.docx>) to consider whether CCSDS can send it with the new CCSDS brochure to your agency’s management.

Download the templates (same as were emailed earlier) and upload your report.

Visitor’s passes:  Unfortunately, family members cannot attend the committee tour of KSC, because we are going to areas where only badged/cleared personnel can go.  Fortunately, if anyone has family members accompanying them on this trip, KSC is providing “visitor’s passes” which will allow free access to some of the facilities and tours at the KSC Visitor’s Center.  If you would like to have one for family members, send an email to Nick Tongson telling him how many you would like.  Please do this ASAP so KSC can prepare them to be provided to you on the first day of the meeting.

Observers:  Our Korean observer agency, KARI, will attend starting Tuesday as observers.  Dr. Ahn and Dr. Park from KARI are the normal IOAG representatives, and they are coming a day early to observe the CMC.  Welcome!

We’re looking forward to a busy and productive meeting!

Best regards,
