AbstractA simple and versatile tracking system is described, providing trajectory information for any rocket, balloon or airborne scientific device which employs telemetry. The system is thought to serve as a back-up or a replacement for radar to provide the trajectory data of sounding rockets. Two basic systems are comprised: the tone range system, providing the slant range information and the RDF system, providing angular data. Data reduction is handled by a small Computer.
