SCR 3-1152: Change STANDARD_VALUE_TYPE and MAXIMUM_LENGTH for SPACECRAFT_POINTING_MODE to SUGGESTED and 25 respectively
Problem Summary: SPACECRAFT_POINTING_MODE has a standard value type (STANDARD_VALUE_TYPE) of DYNAMIC which requires PDS approval for adding new standard values. Values are limited to twelve (12) characters. The Odyssey THEMIS team would like to use this keyword with several new values including some that will be devised in the future and aren't currently known. An example of a new value is "HGA_MITIGATION_R-10". There would appear to be little merit in requiring formal approval for of values of this type. The currently proposed addition, HGA_MITITGATION_R_10 at 19 characters exceeds the allowed length of twelve (12) characters.
