AbstractRecent changes in spectrum availability as well as higher demands for spectrum have motivated the development of telemetry transmit systems capable of fully operating over both L and S telemetry bands. However, enabling operation within these two bands poses new problems in system design. This paper presents a prototype system capable of operating between 1.4 and 2.4 GHz, which supports continuous phase modulation (CPM) waveforms such as pulse code modulation (PCM), frequency modulation (FM), and shaped offset quadrature phase shift keying (SOQPSK). The system architecture is detailed, and the prototype performance is discussed.
