Dear Kevin,
Your charter is very well done. I fully subscribe to the - very pragmatic -
strategy that you propose.

I have a couple of comments:

1. Dual area director is uncommon, though justifiable in this case. Indeed,
intra-vehicle coms belong to SOIS whereas the other cases belong to SLS. How
to resolve practically this dual-area situation deserves to be discussed at
2. My team in ESA is currently working on the subject and I believe we will
be able to play an active role
3. One important point: your charter is only addressing communication
services when I strongly believe that the wireless networks in use on lunar
or Mars surface will have to also provide navigation service. The ability to
provide in real time an accurate position information of all mobile users
(astronauts, rovers) is an invaluable asset that needs to be taken into
account from the outset. After all, the use of wireless coms systems to
complement GPS in urban and indoor environment is under development, we can
benefit of these developments. We are working on this.

Best regards

                                        Proposed Charter for Review          

Dear CCSDS members and wireless-interested parties -

Attached is the proposed charter for the CCSDS Spacecraft Onboard
Interface Services, SOIS, Wireless Working Group (WWG).

We are posting the proposed charter for a broader community review
prior to submitting to the CCSDS Engineering Steering Group, CSEG,
for ratification.

The proposed Wireless Working Group realizes the breadth of application
and technical issues (e.g., security, QoS) that wireless data transmission
may impact.  We plan on working closely with established CCSDS Working
Groups as we go forward in establishing recommendations for wireless
communications in support of space activities.  To this end, we are
requesting 10 minutes of your time to review, and comment on, the
attached proposed charter.

All critiques, comments, and suggestions are welcome.  Thanks in advance
for your time.
