AbstractThe Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s (JPL) Advanced Multi-Mission Operations System (AMMOS) system processes data received from deep-space spacecraft, where error rates are high, bit rates are low, and every bit is precious. Frame synchronization and data extraction as performed by AMMOS enhance data acquisition and reliability for maximum data return and validity. Unique aspects of data phase determination, sync acquisition and sync loss and other bit-level topics are covered.
