Dear SpaceWire Technology Developers and Users,
Unfortunately we have to inform you that the twenty-second SpaceWire Working Group meeting planned from 15th to 17th of April 2014 has to be postponed!
The reason for this postponement is that, other than originally planned, we are not able to provide in time Draft 3 of the revised SpaceWire standard for your review.The review and discussion of the draft revised Standard was planned to be the main subject for this WG meeting.
As previously discussed we are committed to give the SpaceWire Working Group the opportunity to provide their comments early in the standardisation process.
Since this important objective cannot be guaranteed and the draft cannot be sent out in due time to have your valuable inputs prior to the planned WG meeting this April, we have decided that it is better to postpone the meeting until the draft can be made available to you well ahead of the meeting.
A new date for this SpaceWire Working Group meeting #22 will be proposed.
Please accept my apologies for the inconveniences that this postponement might cause to you!
With best regards,
Head of On-board Payload Data Processing Section
Electrical Engineering Department
