Due to technical difficulties, mailing lists were non functional since, roughly, last summer. They are now
back online but we had to start afresh. Please register (again) to read from us and discuss about your
difficulties. See the dedicated page for details.
The OpenSAND steering committee aims are:
take administrative decisions related to platform steering,
define the contractual aspects associated (e.g. steering committee opening criterias
and confitions for eventual new members according to their contribution, ...),
keep the present agreement observed and take decisions related to its execution,
choose licenses applied on new platform modules,
maintain a Contributor Agreement
in order to encourage platform users to identify and inform the whole community of all
modifications on the platform available in the applicable open sources conditions (GPLv3,
animate the community and particularly organise annual meeting with all its members,
take technical decisions related to platform steering,
define maintenance jobs,
coordinate the different jobs realised by the contributors,
define the technical orientations of the platform (e.g. architecture choices, addition of
new functionalities, maintenance choices, ...).
Thales Alenia Space and the CNES as co-founders of OpenSAND Community
and major contributors, are the first Members of OpenSAND Steering Committee, in
charge of all technical and administrative decisions concerning OpenSAND.
Depending on their contributions into OpenSAND, the Steering Committee
may decide, by unanimous decision, to invite other important contributors
to join the Steering Committee as new Members.
The objective of the CNES
and TASF is to
better optimize and rationalize the research and development in the satellite
domain. It should avoid duplication of efforts and therefore facilitate programs
of new satellite solutions.
Technologies is the current operational maintainer of OpenSAND and has a long
experience on OpenSAND, via TASF
and CNES projects.
