Dear CMC colleagues,
The position of Chair for the Optical Communications (OPT) Working Group of the Space Link Services area is currently vacant and needs to be filled in.
In agreement with the procedure described in CCSDS Organization and Processes (A02.1-Y-4 cor 2, Sec 22.214.171.124), I would like to:
- invite your respective organizations to submit candidates.
- inform you that I have identified a suitable candidate for the position: Dr. Jon Hamkins (NASA).
His application to the position has reached consensus within the Optical Working Group.
Hereafter is his bio.
Dr. Jon Hamkins is the chief technologist of the Communications, Tracking, and Radar division at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. He has spent his career primarily concentrating on advanced channel coding and modulation techniques, including turbo and low-density parity-check codes, ranging, and optical communications. He has been an active participant in helping CCSDS standardize technologies in these areas. In the RF & Modulation and the Coding & Sync Working Groups, he developed the telemetry ranging and variable coded modulation specifications now adopted as standards. As past chair of the recently revived Time Management Working Group, he helped bring its first major product to completion, a Green Book describing time transfer, clock correlation, and clock synchronization techniques used by CCSDS agencies. In the Optical Working Group, he wrote the high-photon-efficiency specification for the physical and the coding & sync layers, which were the first standards adopted by the working group.
