      The goals of TCAS were to recommend a Telemetry Integrated Processing System (TIPS) that will improve SAMTEC mission support, increase flexibility and modularity of the system, and provide a system that is more easily operated by the range operations personnel with an associated reduction in overall operating cost. SAMTEC has completed the conceptual phase of the classical system life cycle. The validation phase is now well underway and the development phase is expected to start early in the calendar year 1975. The Integrated Telemetry System was derived utilizing the fundamentals of good engineering practices, common sense, and very extensive analysis. The resultant system should satisfy the goals of improved support, flexibility and modularity, and should provide at least a 20 to 40 percent reduction in the current telemetry processing expenditures.
