• TELEMETRY PROCESSING SYSTEM FOR THE PACIFIC MISSILE TEST CENTER

      Knight, Paul; Pacific Missile Test Center (International Foundation for Telemetering, 1986-10)
      Since the late 1970’s the telemetry processing and display requirements of the Pacific Missile Test Center have been handled by the Telemetry Data Handling System. With the increasing use of embedded computers on test vehicles and the requirements to process and display larger volumes of data at higher data rates, many programs will soon exceed the capabilities of the Telemetry Data Handling System. The Telemetry Processing System is a replacement of the Telemetry Data Handling System that will be brought online in the Pacific Missile Test Center’s Telemetry Data Center in 1990. The Telemetry Processing System is required to meet the processing and display requirements of the Pacific Missile Test Center’s range users for the next decade. A discussion of the functional implementation and performance requirements of Telemetry Processing System is presented.
