AbstractThe Navy's Real-time Telemetry Processing System (RTPS III) is a third generation system. Designed and built by Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC), RTPS III will support the demands of the Navy flight test community well into the 1990's. The RTPS III is custom-crafted using CSC's system development methodology which blends the best features of the current Navy RTPS system and previously proven CSC systems. A major objective of CSC's RTPS III design is the continuation of existing Navy user interfaces. The transition from the existing system to the integrated RTPS III has also been facilitated by the incorporation of common interfaces to Navy applications software, thus ensuring "new system" acceptance. RTPS III is designed to include a powerful front-end capable of Engineering Unit conversions at more than 200,000 samples per second (sps) per telemetry stream with expansion to 500,000 sps. It will include networking concepts which allow the simple addition of additional subsystems should expansion be required. RTPS III also supports both secure and integrated modes of operation for classified and unclassified processing. The CSC design, a custom combination of proven and new development, results in a Navy system which meets tomorrow's flight test requirements today. Other benefits to NATC are a modular, cost-effective solution with lower life-cycle costs, and a broader range of possibilities for evolving and reconfiguring the system to service new applications and users.
