AbstractThe Telemetry Integrated Processing System (TIPS) at the U.S. Air Force Western Space and Missile Center (WSMC), Vandenberg AFB, California is a large scale, computer based, telemetry processing and display system installed in the early 80’s. The digital printer/plotters used in the Quick Look Display Area (QLDA) were installed in 1979 and their maintenance support has become critical. Their replacement is now necessary. This paper will present the approach used to solve the replacement of these printer/plotters by off-the shelf commercial equipment. The key objectives of providing users with a similar display output and strict hardware and software compatibility with existing system have been met. In addition, the new equipment installed can meet the display requirements of future developments or upgrades of the TIPS.
