A FLEXIBLE SWITCHING ARCHITECTURE FOR DIVERSE SIGNAL TYPESGery, Brian; Apogee Labs, Inc. (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2007-10)Modern telemetry systems often require signal switching hardware to facilitate signal routing reconfiguration between missions. As these systems have grown more complex with high signal counts and diverse signal types in the same system, the need for flexible switching hardware that can adapt to these changing requirements has emerged. A novel architecture for diverse signal switching hardware is presented that addresses the changing requirements of modern telemetry systems. While conventional commercial switching gear handles each signal type in a separate group, the proposed architecture allows digital and analog signal types to be switched, multiplexed, scaled, and combined (as the signal types allow) all within the same chassis, and between signal types.
Network Design Considerations in Telemetry SystemsGrebe, Andy; Klein, Wayne; Apogee Labs, Inc. (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2007-10)In today’s world, computer networking has become common place both in industry as well as home, however all networks are not the same! The Telemetry world, like with many industries, has critical design considerations that need to be evaluated when you begin a new system or just adding on to a current infrastructure. This paper is intended to outline needed considerations when planning or implementing a network design in Telemetry Systems. These applications can range from sensor data transport through High Definition/High Speed Video applications.
