      As fuzes and guidance systems become more sophisticated, the use of artillery projectile TM’s is increasing. In some applications where data requirements are simple in nature and limited in volume, and where there is a high probability of successful hardware recovery, the use of micropower digital memory systems is more desirable than the conventional, more costly RF system. Digital Memory TM systems, their capabilities and limitations, design considerations, and field and laboratory test results are presented. Some of the extreme environments and shock resistant packaging techniques are also discussed.
