> 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 Licklider Transmission 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.
