AMSAT-NA Microsats - Protocols
The UoSAT/Microsat File transfer protocols (The PACSAT Protocol Suite) were first published in the Proceedings of the 9th ARRL Computer Networking Conference, September, 1990. The PACSAT Protocols define file transfer protocols for use by Low Earth Orbit Packet Radio Satellites (PACSATs).
These protocols are currently in use on AO-16, LO-19, UO-14, UO-22, KO-23, KO-25, IO-26, and PoSAT. They are also in use on three pure commercial spacecraft, the upcoming UNAMSAT mission, and six missions under development.
Most of the specification files contain the original text of the papers that define the Pacsat Protocols. Other files contain updates to those documents. The updates will be rolled into the base documents at some time in the far future, probably on another timeline. I don't know why I even mentioned it. In any case, only the base+update represents the true protocol. The text files are available as a zipped group.
