• DYNAMIC TRACKING PHASED ARRAY DATA LINKS

      Brown, K. D.; Allen, Chris; NNSA-KCP; University of Kansas (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2004-10)
      This paper describes a flexible telemetry data link developed by National Nuclear Safety Administration’s Kansas City Plant (NNSA-KCP) and the University of Kansas (KU) in support of NNSA’s Remote Sensing Laboratory (NNSA-RSL) located at the Nevada Test Site. This data link is based on a beam steerable phased array antenna (PAA). The paper describes the PAA and the Airborne Measurement System (AMS) application requiring signal source tracking. It highlights flight test data collected during recent flight testing on the Nevada Test Site for the AMS.
    • HIGH ALTITUDE TRANSMITTER FLIGHT TESTING

      Brown, K. D.; Sorensen, Trevor; NNSA ’s Kansas City Plant; University of Kansas (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2004-10)
      This paper describes a high altitude experimental flight test platform developed by the University of Kansas (KU) and the National Nuclear Security Administration’s Kansas City Plant (NNSA’s Kansas City Plant) for high altitude payload flight testing. This platform is called the Kansas University Balloon Experiment Satellite (KUBESat). The paper describes the flight test platform and experimental flight test results captured at Fort Riley, KS from characterization of the KCP developed Distributed Transmitter (DTX).
