This standard was prepared by the Data Multiplex Committee of the Telemetry Group TG, Range Commanders Council RCC. The DDML Handbook is a common reference for use by organizations that produce DDML files, by ranges that receive DDML files, and by vendors who incorporate DDML files into their telemetry processing systems. The use of this handbook will eliminate inconsistencies and differing interpretations of DDML files so that all parties will benefit from its usage.This Data Display Markup Language DDML Handbook is intended to supplement Chapter 9 of RCC IRIG 106 Telemetry Standards. Practical guidance for properly generating and using DDML files is provided and examples of some of the more commonly used DDML features are given. Since there may be multiple ways of describing these features in DDML, the examples are intended to illustrate best practices. The overall purpose of this handbook is to improve the use of DDML as a standard by presenting clear guidelines and thereby eliminating any misinterpretations that may exist.
