      The VME bus is used in a wide variety of airborne applications. The particular application of the VPE is for use in the MSTI satellite to provide spacecraft telemetry. The VME based PCM encoder can provide telemetry from any stand alone data acquisition system. This paper describes the VME based PCM encoder. Since this design is ruggedized to meet the launch and environmental requirements for space, it can be used in any airborne VME system.
