      The efficiency of range telemetry as currently practiced is somewhat limited by the display technology employed. The manpower, space, and accuracy problems associated with current methodology are examined. The limitations of some new approaches are discussed. The concept of Real Time Digital Strip Chart Emulation (RTDSCE) and the benefits inherent to such a technical approach are presented and discussed in detail. These benefits include reduction of manpower and space requirements by the use of the workstation concept, the elimination of D/A conversion by direct recording of digitized signals, and the facilitation of critical realtime viewing through high resolution video monitoring.
