C2MS11 — At Next Major Revision: Order MEs and Fields Consistently

  • Key: C2MS11-176
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Kratos RT Logic, Inc. ( Mr. Mike Anderson)
  • Summary:

    Some Message Elements and Fields are in different order from message to message. The fields are just a listing so not as important, but the MEs are order-dependent. One example of how this is an issue is that the Telemetry CCSDS Packet Message added a new ME, but this had to go to the end (ME6) because of backward compatibility. This creates a strange ordering with VCID, APID, Collection Point, SCID. This is just one example, but the need is to evaluate all the MEs and fields and see if any need to be moved to make messages more uniform in structure.

    Additionally, there are cases where some MEs have been removed between 1.0 and 1.x, leaving "not used"/"FILL" in the corresponding positions of MEs and these need cleaning up.
