CCSDS 500.0-G-2, NAVIGATION DATA - DEFINITIONS AND CONVENTIONS, INFORMATIONAL REPORT (GREEN BOOK). This Report contains technical material to supplement the CCSDS Recommended Standards
for the standardization of spacecraft navigation data generated by CCSDS Member Agencies.
The topics covered herein include radiometric data content, spacecraft ephemeris, planetary
ephemeris, tracking station locations, coordinate systems, and attitude data. This Report
deals explicitly with the technical definitions and conventions associated with inter-Agency
cross-support situations involving the transfer of ephemeris, tracking, and attitude data. This
version of the Green Book contains expanded material regarding spacecraft attitude data and
radiometric tracking data.
Through the process of normal evolution, it is expected that expansion, deletion or
modification to this Report may occur. This Report is therefore subject to CCSDS document
management and change control procedures. Current versions of CCSDS documents are
