COST272 Documents
-----
COST deliverables are categorised in (a) temporary documents, (b) working documents and (c) external documents.

Note: the minutes of the meeting are in the activities area.

Temporary documents are finalised versions of working documents.

Working documents are reports about work carried out in the framework of the Action.

External documents are authored by non-COST272 members and are included in the Action repository because of their informational value.

All documents are denominated according to the following naming convention:

[TYPE-YEAR-NUMBER-FORMAT(.VERSION)] where

TYPE is either TD, WD or ED;
NUMBER is a unique id for the document within a year;
FORMAT is either P for paper and S for slides.
A version number VERSION may be used for working documents.

Note: the access to some documents may be restricted to COST272 participants.

The Research-At-A-Glance Initiative
-----
The Research-At-A-Glance initiative aims at providing an overview about today's issues in the satellite field. In this respect, COST272 is a unique platform where European experts from academic institutions and the industry meet and share ideas.

The papers (most of them survey-like) available for downloading in this area were kindly provided by their authors. Please note that these papers may be the result of prior activities.

The Last Mile Initiative
-----
In the telecommunications world, the "last mile" issue has become a classic. When it comes to the product life cycle the same issue arises : more than often, due to the lack of information, the feedback loop is not adequately closed from the production to the research where everything started.

The Last Mile initiative aims at providing actors from the Industry with a forum where to notify and discuss with research people about the latest satellite products released on the market, hence closing the loop.

Similarly, the previous Research-At-A-Glance initiative aims at closing the loop in the reverse direction, providing the audience with a comprehensive view of what are the latest issues in the satellite research field, hence the future hot products.

-----
We hope that the COST272 Last Mile Forum will be the place where people can meet and discuss about the latest industrial developments on the European satellite scene.

Please note that this is an experimental service. Posts are not moderated and are expected to comply with the netiquette.

The message board software is kindly provided by eXtropia.
