The engineering Standards in the E-50 discipline address the communications links used during either spacecraft operations (i.e. space-to-ground and space-to-space or during spacecraft assembly, integration and test, and operational phases). The course addresses the first set of (defined or adopted) standards for Space Data Links focusing on the lowest layers of the OSI model including Psychical and Data Link Layer. The following standards will be covered:
The course does not cover the ECSS E-50 standards for on-board communications (ECSS-E-ST-50-11C, ECSS-E-ST-50-12C, ECSS-E-ST-50-13C, ECSS-E-ST-50-14C, ECSS-E-ST-50-15C, ECSS-E-ST-50-51C, ECSS-E-ST-50-52C, and ECSS-E-ST-50-53C).
Provide a basic understanding and explain the rationale behind key requirements in the ECSS E-50 discipline.
