• AUTOMATIC TOOLS FOR TELEMETRY TEST RANGE SPECTRUM MANAGEMENT

      Woolsey, Roy B.; Technology for Communications International (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2000-10)
      Automatic spectrum management and monitoring systems are very useful to manage frequencies at test ranges and assure interference-free transmission of telemetry signals. Spectrum management systems assign telemetry frequencies using database information on available and occupied channels and analysis tools which can determine whether a data link will support telemetry. Modern, DSP-based spectrum monitoring systems, in fixed or mobile configurations, automate the process of performing spectrum occupancy to verify clear channels and identify and locate sources of interference; they are integrated with and utilize the management system database. Such systems are important to assure reliable communications channels for telemetry.
