Dear Xiongwen He,

I have included both the SLP WG as well as the RF&Modulation WG for comment on your questions below.
The Physical Layer of Proximity-1 was originally part of one blue book which also incorporated the synchronization and channel coding aspects as well.
From a historical perspective, I can answer your questions. However, for the physical layer issues/questions please contact Enrico Vassallo who is the RFM WG chairman. For synchronization and channel coding issues/questions please contact Massimo Bertinelli, who is the Coding & Synchronization (C&S) WG chairman.

Subject: 答复: Questions about Proximity -1 space data link protocol

Dear Mr. Greg Kazz,

I have some other questions about Proximity -1 space data link protocol-Physical layer. I hope you can help me.

a) In 3.2.1 Table3-1

Why the modulation of E2d devices is different? What are microprobes?

** From a historical perspective, the prototypical E2d device we had in mind was a micro-probe.  NASA sent a micro-probe to Mars called Deep Space 2 (DS-2), deployed from the Mars Polar Lander in 2000, which unfortunately failed to communicate. **

b) In

" The following three additional channels (fixed single forward and return frequency pairs) are defined for Proximity-1 operations: "

Why is "additional" used? ** The first channel, channel 1 defined in the specification is the hailing channel. Additional means after this first channel, I.e., channels 0, 2, 3 in this case **

What's the use case for channel 4~7 and channel 8~15?** It is the job of the program or project to define these. Currently, no agency has found a need to provide a frequency assignment for these channels yet **

c) In

NOTES 1 The Doppler frequency rate does not include the Doppler rate required for tracking canister or worst-case spacecraft-to-spacecraft cases.
Why doesn't The Doppler frequency rate include the two cases?** From a historical perspective, the Doppler freq. rate requirement was very generic and was assumed to meet most of the user’s use cases expect for very demanding performance cases such as tracking a canister or worst-case spacecraft-to-spacecraft tracking scenarios **

I would appreciated it if you could reply and help me clarify the questions.

Best Regards,
Xiongwen He
