The Consultative Committee of Space Data Systems (CCSDS) proposes a packetized telemetry scheme for the convenience of data exchange and networking in space activity. This paper describes the outline of the telemetry scheme and the on-orbit experiment which was carried out to show the applicability of the proposed CCSDS packet telemetry scheme using the Japan's satellite "Hiten" in a highly elliptical orbit. The telemetry data which are generated by the onboard instruments are packetized in Hiten, and reformed to the original data in earth stations successfully. The experimental results show that the standardized scheme is helpful for tracking cross-support between organizations, and that the concatenated code is quite effective to transmit data in a low C/N condition.
