• Performance Comparison of Aeronautical Telemetry in S-Band and C-Band

      Temple, Kip; Selbrede, Robert; Edwards Air Force Base (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2010-10)
      This paper compares telemetry link performance of the PCM/FM waveform when simultaneously transmitting in two different frequency bands, S-Band and C-Band. A description of the aircraft and ground station is presented followed by flight test results. These results are presented in the form of received signal strength and accumulated bit errors, versus time and link availability, over the flight paths. Conclusions are drawn based upon the presented flight test results.
