• A CCSDS Compatible High-Rate Telemetry Formatter for Space Application

      Barringer, Bruce O.; Orbital Science Corporation (International Foundation for Telemetering, 1995-11)
      OSC is presently developing a high-rate telemetry collection and formatting component for NASA's EOS-AM1 spacecraft. This device, called the Science Formatting Equipment, is capable of collecting data at aggregate rates exceeding 130 Mbps. The collected data is formatted into CCSDS compatible data structures, error coded, and then routed either to a downlink output or to a recording device at data rates up to 150 Mbps. This paper serves as a brief introduction to this component.
