AbstractThe Advanced Range Telemetry (ARTM) program is a tri-service telemetry modernization project whose goal is to assure that all Department of Defense (DoD) test and training ranges are able to use telemetry as necessary to carry out their respective missions. Multi-h Continuous Phase Modulation (CPM) has been selected by the ARTM JPO as the Tier II ARTM waveform, because it offers significant improvements over both legacy telemetry waveforms (PCM/FM) and the newly-introduced Tier I waveform (Feher-patented FQPSK) in terms of spectral containment and detection efficiency, while retaining a constant envelope characteristic. The paper describes the theoretical and measured performance of the ARTM Tier II multi-h CPM waveform, and the implementation of the trellis demodulator being developed for it.
