AbstractAs the complexity of telemetry systems increases, the desirability of using remote controlled receivers in these systems to reduce human error, setup time, and premission calibration time increases. The specification of such receivers needs to be done carefully to stay within economic and space limitations. A general discussion of possible system objectives is given in which basic decision questions are raised on the degree of remote control required. A tabulation of receiver functions and controls is given followed by detailed discussion of these various parameters in terms of feasibility, problem areas, space requirements and cost where it represents a major impact. The computer-receiver interface is discussed in terms of how this choice will affect cost and system compatibility with other types of equipment. These discussions should provide some insight in the tradeoffs required in specifying a remotely controlled telemetry receiver.
