AbstractThe Communication Interface Equipment (CIE) developed by the United States Air Force for the Space Transportation System provides an improved command and telemetry link between the Orbiter and attached or detached payloads. This unique equipment allows for the secure data transfer and communication directly to the ground tracking data relay satellite system and to payloads while using the Communication Subsystem of the Orbiter as a relay. The extended capabilities of the CIE provide for digital and analog command conversion, di-bit decoding, multiple payload commanding, acceptance of any telemetry . format, and transfer of telemetry data without modification at rates up to 1.024 Mbps to via the Orbiter Communications Subsystem.
