Dear All,
        I would like to inform you about an ongoing work for 
"International Deep Space Interoperability Standards" to support the 
future Deep Space Gateway (DSG)..
A number of draft standards are provided at  
https://www.internationaldeepspacestandards.com/ .
The have been collaboratively prepared by "International Space Station 
Partner Agencies" i.e. NASA, Roscosmos, JAXA, ESA, and CSA) with the goal 
of defining interfaces and environments to facilitate cooperative deep 
space exploration endeavors. These draft standards focus on topics 
prioritized in this early phase of exploration planning and are not 
intended to dictate design features beyond the interfaces. 

With respect to the SLS Area the most interesting standard in preparation 
is the one about Communications. 
The Communications standard defines the functional, interface and 
performance standards necessary to support interoperable and compatible 
communications between spacecraft, ground infrastructure, other space and 
surface vehicles.The International Communication System Interoperability 
Standards (ICSIS) is available at 

As mentioned above, the draft standards are not intended to dictate design 
features beyond the interfaces and can be regarded as standards defining 
which standards shall be supported (sorry for the pun).
As such, it will not be a big surprise for you the fact that most of the 
documents listed in section 2.1  APPLICABLE DOCUMENTS are CCSDS Standards 
with a very high numbers of documents from our SLS Area.

So you/your WG may find interesting looking at the ICSIS document.

Best regards and Happy Easter to you all
I look forward to seeing you all in Gaithersburg.

Gian Paolo
