[CESG] Fwd: [CMC] ISO Affiliation with CCSDS

I’m generally for ISO affiliation.  It was useful to us (MITRE) in getting some of the CCSDS work (SCPS) uptake by some of our other sponsors. I don’t know how useful the ISO affiliation has been to other CCSDS efforts, so if it’s significantly expensive I can’t come up with a STRONG motivation for keeping it.

Hi All,

CCSDS secretariat is considering to sever the CCSDS affiliation with ISO due to cost of implementation of ISO requirements and associated fees.  The consequence are the CCSDS standards will not be ISO standards and there will be no ISO TC20/SC13 and ISO TC20/SC14 affiliation with CCSDS.  I need to make an urgent decision in this matter so please provide your input by COB Thursday December 3.  Also a formal CMC poll will be provided for your official vote very soon.

Thank you,


Dr. James Afarin
