[Smwg] Updated Configuration Profile andCWE Service Agreement Tech Note on

I have been surveying the technote and I must say it is quite the oeuvre!
For those of use attempting to parse this into some sort of configuration profile book initial outline, I was wondering for all the various service profiles developed if you had something like a spreadsheet that listed the parameters per FR grouping.  For example, one of the groups in the Forward CLTU space link service profile (7.1.1) is fwd401SpaceLinkCarrierXmitFr and in here we have


fwd401CarrierXmitPolarization, etc

And there is, of course, something similar for Telecommand Real-Time Multiplexed space link service profile (7.1.2)

I think it might make digesting this a bit easier if there is some sort of tool like a spreadsheet that had the service profiles indexed by major functional groups and listed the parameters accordingly.  I think that could also help to tease out more about how to structure the eventual service agreement/configuration profile for consumption by "mere mortals" :)

If there is no such tool please note I'm not asking that this be generated only if there is some sort of organizing tool that you might have in the background.

Best regards,

Subject: [Smwg] Updated Configuration Profile andCWE Service Agreement Tech Note on

CSSMWG colleagues -
I have uploaded the latest update of the Requirements for Simple Configuration Profiles and Service Agreements Tech Note to the CWE at URL:

-          https://cwe.ccsds.org/css/docs/CSS-SM/CWE%20Private/Tech%20Note%20Development/Config%20Profile%20Svc%20Agreement%20Tech%20Note/Simplified%20ConfigProfilesAndSvcAgreements_TechNote-v1x3.docx?Web=1
The major pieces of the update are:

-    Updated material in section 4 to be consistent with the W-0.07 (December 2018) version of the SMURF White Book and current concepts for the Service Package Data Format.

-    Additional material in section 4 describing the adaptation of the Configuration Profiles and Service Agreements to support both pre-arranged SICF port allocation vs. dynamic port allocation for SLE and CSTS transfer service instances.

-    Added placeholder sections for USLP Frame-based forward Space Link Service Profiles in section 7.

-    Updated Forward CADU and Forward AOS Frame Space Link Service Profiles in section 7 to include more details on fixed-length data unit sync and channel coding, consistent with the evolution of the Forward Frame Cross Support Transfer Service.

-    Partially updated examples of the use of Configuration Profiles in Service Package Requests in section 8.
Best regards,
