I suspect that time is stored in some ticks but is showed in seconds. Please see the update of original post. I am almost shure that those 8 bytes are time.

    Thinking 8 bytes and ticks you might want to try the following:

    First four bytes (0-3) | Last four bytes (4-7) --------------------------------------------------- seconds since epoch, | additional micro- e.g. 00:00 1st Jan 1970 | seconds Both four byte values are 32 bit integers.

    However, my first calculations give timestamps nowhere near the ones you provide. Maybe some CCSDS time format was used?
