Dear Oswaldo,

You are right in saying that avoiding duplication and maximizing synergies
across the areas should be part of the strategy.

The CESG has recently updated an old list of potential or identified
duplications and this shall be an input to our discussion in London. I will
ask Nestor to distribute it to the CMC now so that e can reflect on it and
come to London with proposals for solution.

The presentation, in chart 41, only depicts the links that are explicitly
mentioned in the Strategic Plan document. The ones you mention (video, audio,
DTN, robotics) are relevant for the big picture we are trying to put together
and we should ask the area directors / WG chairs to be exhaustive in
identifying them in the Strategic Plan (update) or provide this input so that
we can complete the diagram in the presentation.

The points you make of synergy between human spaceflight and the wireless WG
should be escalated to the Area Directors and CESG for resolution. Also the
ground network planning and scheduling  CCSDS standards, their possible
extension to humAn spaceflight and the sharing of the corresponding tools
across the Space Agencies are strategic points to be addressed at CESG level
first and if not resolved escalated to the CMC. This is all good stuff for
the discussion on strategy planned in the CMC meeting in London.

I hope I have addressed all your points and invite the other CMC members to
provide their feedback on these points also.

Regards
Juan

May be is more the Job of the area Managers.

this particular case here.

need to much BW.

planning and scheduling tools.
> As you know ESA got a new development for ESTRAC, NASA Huntsville have one
for payload operations (the same one used by Russia- not the new one, but the
current CPS version), NASA Houston have developed OPTIMIS (where JAXA and ESA
are involved as well) and we found out that in the CCSDS WG the human space
flight part is simply not take into account.
> That means we are development a new standard that can be used for half or
less  of the space community.
> These are may be just little examples and not so important for CMC, but I
think this kind of problems should be faced by the management and decisions
should be taken in order to avoid missing aspects or parallel work.
> In my humble opinion in a strategic roadmap a general guideline should be
reflected in an higher level (as is done now), but all these "daily issues"
should be considered or at least reflected somewhere.
> May be I misunderstood the meaning of the roadmap plan.
> On the other side, I completely agree with Jean-Marc comment that we are
having too many plans, we should harmonize them, we can only take proper
decisions based in the available information, that must be summarized in 1 or
2 places, no more.
> Sorry, I think this E-mails becomes too long, we can talk about that in
London or in a telecom.
