PDS3 Standards: Individual Issue

SCR 3-1144: Extend maximum file name length to 40 characters

Priority: urgent

Problem Summary: The MSL mission has asked PDS to allow file names longer than the present standard of 27.3 for MSL archives. The MSL file naming convention encodes a lot of information in the EDR file name, and there is not enough room in 27.3 characters. This SCR proposes extending the maximum length to 40 characters (36.3).
