AbstractLast year (2005), a paper discussed the efforts of integrating Joint Advanced Missile Instrumentation (JAMI) Program components (JAMI TSPI Unit - JTU, and the Flight Termination Safe & Arm device - FTS&A), commercial off the shelf parts (Flight Termination Receivers, Telemetry Transmitter, Encryptor and Thermal Batteries) and in-house developed devices (PCM Encoder and Tri-band Antenna with integrated Limiter, Filter, & Amplifier) into a five-inch diameter Missile Telemetry (TM) Section. This retrofitted missile would be captive-carried on a F/A-18 jet. This paper is a continuation of that one presented at the 2005 International Telemetry Conference (ITC) Symposium. It annotates the latest status of the JAMI Effort, as well as the Follow-On Effort to qualify the Missile TM Section for an actual missile firing. This would include the developmental and flight qualification efforts for the Explosive Train (Detonation Cord-to-Cutter Ring Assembly) and Thermal Batteries.
