[Smwg] Simple Schedule Recommendation - Draft Red 1.09.

I took a quick look at the updated recommendation and  I believe that proper references for blue books controlling the registries can be provided with the exception of the RF assets communications database.  To the best of my knowledge, this database was created in SANA at the request of the IOAG and therefore does not have a supporting blue book of any type to define it or indicate a policy for its update.  I think something similar happened with the optical comm registry.    I will coordinate that with the SE Area and secretariat to resolve this issue. 

Just to clarify, it looks like the Annex on the schema type definitions has been updated. Presumably the schema update needed from John is just essentially the schema file (or collection of files), correct?

With respect to CCSDS procedures I consider this to be the "review copy", sent to the AD as the last step prior to a resolution for CESG poll being issued.  I will work towards getting the proper registry references identified (for RF + optical comm) and once that is done I believe we can proceed to releasing the book for CESG blue book poll.

Best regards,

Dear all,
                  I've just uploaded the latest draft of the Simple Schedule Red Book, this takes into account the changes that are ongoing with respect to the way which SANA registries are being managed at CCSDS level. This activity hasn't yet been completed so there are a couple of bits highlighted in yellow which will need to be sorted out later. Main impacts of these changes are that there are no longer any Simple Schedule dedicated repositories, all the information we require should be available in existing/in development registries, this has meant a few (relatively) minor tweaks to the data structure;

   stationRef and antennaRef have been replaced by one unique identifier,
   Type,of originatingOrganization parameter is now string64
   Type of user parameter is now string64
   Type of apertureRef is string64

I've also tweaked the UML model a bit and various diagrams and text have been updated to reflect the changes required by the registry issue.

In the meantime, subject to the outstanding  points on the registries, I think we're pretty much finished except for John updating the XML schema.

What's the next step Erik ?, can we go to CESG yet ?

The document, model and diagrams can be found at the following URLs.
