• FILTERING CONSIDERATIONS WHEN TELEMETERING SHOCK AND VIBRATION DATA

      The accurate measurement of shock and vibration data via flight telemetry is necessary to validate structural models, indicate off-nominal system performance, and/or generate environmental qualification criteria for airborne systems. Digital telemetry systems require anti-aliasing filters designed into them. If not properly selected and located, these filters can distort recorded time histories and modify their spectral content. This paper provides filter design guidance to optimize the quality of recorded flight structural dynamics data. It is based on the anticipated end use of the data. Examples of filtered shock data are included.
