Thanks, however the recognition should to go:

*       Lee Pitts (BP book editor)

*       The MSFC interoperability testing crew (to include at least Lee, David Zoller, and Kelvin, plus probably some others), and

*       The JAXA interoperability testing crew (Kiyo, Heinrich, and probably others)

This has taken a while, but I think we have a solid product that should serve CCSDS well.

Dear Keith -

Sincere congratulations for all the significant work you have led in this regard.  This is truly a major accomplishment.

Subject: [Sis-dtn] SIS resolution to publish CCSDS Bundle Protocol Specification

CCSDS Secretariat,

The SIS Area Resolves (SIS-R-2015-06-001) to submit the attached 'Bundle Protocol for CCSDS' for CCSDS polling for publication.

*        There were no technical changes as a result of the Red-3 Agency review, and all of the RIDs were dispositioned either via email on the sis-dtn mailing list or at face-to-face meetings.

*        The test report documenting successful interoperability testing between the NASA-developed Interplanetary Overlay Network (ION) implementation and the IRTF DTN WG DTN2 implementation is attached.

The SIS Area would also like to propose that the following text be added as a dedication page in the book.  This is the same text as was included with the LTP-for-CCSDS book.  We're not looking to make a habit of this - the LTP and BP books are the only ones for which we propose to include such dedication pages.

This book is dedicated to Adrian Hooke, whose end-to-end sensibilities and tireless advocacy for standardization of space data systems directly contributed to the formation of the Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems in 1982.  His unique combination of technical skill, management abilities, and vision served CCSDS well for over 30 years.  During that time CCSDS solidified the standardization of physical and data link layer protocols, and developed standards and technologies that had important and wide-ranging impacts in both the space and terrestrial communications industries. In the late 1990s, Adrian envisioned a new era for space communications leveraging a confluence of terrestrial internetworking and space-based data transport technologies.  This led to the development of a concept that has come to be known as the Solar System Internetwork (SSI), of which the Bundle Protocol described here is a part.

Adrian will be missed, by CCSDS for the scope of his technical contributions and his leadership, and by his colleagues and friends for the greatness of his spirit and his wit. But his legacy to the space community remains. CCSDS will continue to provide useful and innovative solutions to space communication challenges so that Adrian's vision of an interoperable, standards-based communication system that reduces mission development time, cost, and risk will eventually be realized.

Very Respectfully,


Dr. Keith Scott                                                                                           Office: +1.703.983.6547
