AbstractThe RCC 319-07 compliant Flight Termination Receiver (FTR) when configured in a dual cross strapped Flight Termination System (FTS) can provide enhanced fail safe condition monitoring and automatic fail safe condition response capabilities in missile, rocket or target platforms. The redundant RCC 319-07 FTRs will latch ON the destruct ARM and TERMINATE command outputs in the event both Fail-Safe Enabled FTRs experience a simultaneous loss of DC power, loss of the RF carrier, or designated modulated tone beyond the preset loss of the tone time out period. RCC 319-07 FTRs also include a Fail-Safe Enable and ARM latched state recovery for power interruptions of up to 50 milliseconds and over-voltage and output protection circuitry on all command and telemetry outputs.
