I have a request in preparation for SCIds of 25 satellites in a small constellation.
They say they need 25 different codes in Version 1 for TM/TC and 25 different codes in Version 2 for the Payload link.
First time for CNES, but I guess other CCSDS Members may already have brought such case to the SANA...
I know the limitations on assignment of new SCId codes, but I am not sure of the situation in each frequency band.
I'll clarify with them the exact frequency bands, but I already know they have S-Band for Earth Observation. Is that band overcrowded already?
My other question is about the constellations: is there any particular recommendation from the SANA on how to address requests for multiple satellites ?
I remember this was discussed some years ago but I couldn't find the conclusions, nor I can remember if the discrimination with frequency bands was established after that discussion and if those conclusions were updated.
Thank you for your clarifications on these question.
Of course, I brought the ULSP to their attention but I'm not sure this company is ready to migrate as they plan to launch within the next two years. We will see...
