AbstractThis paper will describe the Pacific Missile Test Center’s (PMTC) approach to a computer controlled telemetry receive and record system. The advantages of this system include: fast, accurate equipment setup and interconnection, automatic verification of operational status, and simplified signal monitoring. PMTC personnel developed the system architecture and software. The system hardware is all unmodified off-the-shelf equipment. The main design drivers were cost, reliability, and minimizing the effect of any single point failure. The system uses many individual switches instead of a small number of large switch matrices. Manual patching capability has been maintained. This patching system provides a backup solution if all the computers get “zapped”. The patching system also provides increased signal routing flexibility.
