NoteThe retrieval of telemetry data during and after High-G (greater than 1000 g’s) testing has presented numerous problems. In an attempt to address some of the more critical problems associated with High-G testing the Telemetry/ Test Engineering Divison of the Naval Weapons Center (NAVWPNCEN) developed and tested a High-G telemetry system to 10K g’s with expectations of achieving values up to 50K g’s. Innovative shock reduction techniques were applied to reduce the direct shock seen by the individual telemetry system components Major shock reduction was seen through the selection and proper orientation of system materials and components, as well as, the utilization of glass beads and various foam densities as shock absorption medias.
