AbstractWe need to begin to define what the future of point-to-point telemetry will be in the new world of wireless communications, increasing bandwidth requirements, the integration of test and training, and modeling and simulation (M&S) interacting with open air ranges. The Advanced Range Telemetry Program will introduce several new technologies to the telemetry community over the next several years, how will we use and build on them for the future? What kind of architecture will we need to be able to interact with the M&S and Training communities? How do we create that architecture and to what use would it be put by a test program? The answer, we believe, is to build the equivalent of a network in the sky. An extension of the Internet, in simplistic terms. The system under test (SUT), or the systems in training would become nodes of a large interactive network. Instead of the SUT being treated as something outside the sphere of control for the range, the SUTs onboard instrumentation systems would become an integral part of the greater range complex. This paper will address what the architecture of a real-time telemetry network might look like and how it could be implemented within the telemetry community.
