      The requirement for improved ramp telemetry data and video coverage has prompted the Telemetry Branch at the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) to install an L and S-Band Fiberoptic Transmission System linking multiple hangar locations to the Telemetry Data Center. This system uses Commercial-off-the-Shelf (COTS) equipment and is capable of transmitting analog telemetry data and video from multiple sites to one location for processing and display. The system at NAWCAD has been in use since 1996 and is continually growing to accommodate additional requirements.
