[Moims-sc] MO Mission Data Product Distribution Services

I will be interested to hear your thoughts in Darmstadt.

I would hope that the Mission Data Product Distribution Service would work regardless of the product type or format.  There may be a hundred or more different file formats and new missions may each have several unique products.

I would not expect the Product Distribution Service to actually generate any products.  Its job is to distribute them.  Other services may exist for the product generation.

If we assume it is a file distribution service, then users can subscribe to different file types, indicate how often they want files provided, identify missing files in their own list and request those, ask what is available, etc.  I would assume there is an authorization process that occurs prior to a new request being honored.

I am not sure that our working group needs to define the formats for inside each of the file types.

Dear Mehran,

thanks for this.

One high level comment regards the scope for such service, which covers in
your draft type of data coming from M&C type of systems but leave out the
“real” mission data, “mission" being the end-product of the mission i.e. science products and related data
either downloaded on payload link or produced by payload data processing canters

I believe that we should include in the scope of this service not only TT&C TM (packets, parameters, etc)
but also science and related data e.g. as formatted file products (level 0, Level 1 etc).
We have already working practice and formats description standards and we
should make sure that we define service in a generic way so that we can support that
 as well.

I can elaborate more during the meeting in November.
