• DIGITAL LINK FOR MISSILE TELEVISION

      Rieger, James L.; Naval Weapons Center, China Lake, CA (International Foundation for Telemetering, 1986-10)
      Transmission of a binary signal representing a standard black-and-white television picture requires several forms of compression to reduce data to bit rates compatible with available telemetry links and equipment. Commercially-available compression systems are made for video teleconferencing, and use interframe coding which cannot provide fullmotion display required in many applications. In the full-motion system described here, some compression is obtained by a conversion process which causes no picture degradation at all; further compression results in loss of expendable picture characteristics. A brassboard system for use in television-guided missiles and remotelypiloted vehicles is built, tested, and demonstrated.
    • THE EFFECTS OF INCREASED SATELLITE POWER FLUX DENSITY ON NWC TELEMETRY OPERATIONS

      This paper presents an analysis of the proposed increase in satellite power flux density as it would affect present, currently proposed, and possible future telemetry operations at NWC and other ranges and multi-range operations. Also included are proposed methods for mitigation of interference if flux density is raised anyway.
