      The Israel Military Industries (IMI), Systems Division, has had requirements for telemetry systems and measurements techniques to obtain data regarding projectiles performance in-flight and in-bore. This paper presents a brief description of a new programmble PCM telemetry system which employs several novel techniques like flexible multiplexing, programmable signal conditioner on a channel per channel basis for multiple gains and offsets), and a miniature size due to thick film hybrid construction and all thses along with very high shock survivability and long term reliability. This paper also presents a description of a very low cost telemetry package for measuring the in-flight spin rate using a specially designed transmitting antenna, a telemetry package for measuring event type phenomena and analog data (acceleration, pressure, strains, etc.) while the projectile is traveling in-bore. Examples of data obtained during actual firings are presented and discussed.
