AbstractThe CCSDS recently developed the CCSDS File Delivery Protocol which can operate in configurations from simple point-to-point space/ground systems to complex arrangements of orbiters, landers, relaying spacecraft, and multiple ground facilities. An international interoperability test program has been developed in support of the development and fielding of the protocol. The first phase was successfully completed in the Fall of 2002. The second phase is to be completed about the time of the presentation of this paper. First phase testing involved five independent implementations of the Core Procedures of the protocol. Since these Procedures are for point-to-point file transfers, only two protocol “entities” were involved in each executed test. The second phase tests other Procedures, which involve multi-hop transferring of files. This phase will involve two separate, independent implementations, with one implementation being hosted on multiple hardware/OS platforms. Each test will involve three or more entities.
