      Montano, William G.; Hernandez, Francisco Jr; White Sands Missile Range (International Foundation for Telemetering, 1992-10)
      The Salinas Peak location is ideal for a Telemetry Acquisition and Relay Station. The Telemetry facility consists of a new building and the Telemetry Acquisition System (TAS) from Atom Peak. Salinas Peak is located in the San Andres Mountains, 68 miles north west of the White Sands Missile Range (WSMR) launch complexes. Salinas Peak provides better coverage for all Range Telemetry (TM) missions, and has excellent line-of-sight to the launch areas, impact areas and the Telemetry Acquisition and Relay System (TARS) mobile microwave relay stations.
