AbstractThe first Indian Remote Sensing Satellite was launched on 17th March 1988 from a Soviet Cosmodrome into a 904 Km Polar Sunsynchronous orbit. The data transmission from the satellite is at 5.2 Mega Bits/sec in S-Band and 10.4 Mega Bits/sec in X-Band. The payload data is formatted into custom made 8328 words format. A programmable unique versatile frame sync and Decommutation unit has been developed to test the data from the data handling system during its various phases of development. The system works upto 50 Mega Bits/sec and can handle frame sync code length upto 128 bits and a frame length of 2 Exp 20 bits. Provision has been made for programming the allowable bit errors as well as bit slippages, using a front panel setting. This paper describes the design and implementation of such a high bit rate frame synchroniser developed specially for IRS Spacecraft application. It will also highlight the performance of the system.
