AbstractA shock hardened, delayed transmission PCM system for use in an artillery projectile instrumentation program is reported. The output of the projectile mounted PCM encoder is coupled to an MOS shift register memory to delay data transmission until projectile flight, thus eliminating the requirement for a real-time transmission link for in-barrel data. The capabilities to monitor both in-barrel phenomena and flight performance parameters are included. Windowing of the transient, in-barrel data is accomplished by threshold discrimination within the projectile mounted system. System design, operation and ground support requirements are discussed with flight test results presented.
