    This article was first given in a symposium at the California Institute of Technology on ``Realities of Space Exploration,'' showing as graphically as possible that space communication is practical, that the extrapolation of the state of the art is straight-forward, and that the real limitations are those of: 1) external noise, 2) handling an extreme volume of data, 3) certain relativistic effects...

  • A Circularly Polarized Feed for an Automatic Tracking Telemetry Antenna

    Characteristics of a feed that utilizes a unique method to produce a conically scanning main beam are discussed. Model and full scale test data are included to make the feed operation more clearly understood. Certain criteria such as gain, side lobe level, and polarization must be considered when designing a primary feed for a paraboloid reflector. Also, the automatic tracking requirement calls fo...

  • The Dynamic Analysis of the Averaging Type FM Discriminator

    Publication Year: 1959, Page(s):111 - 117

    The dynamic response of an averaging type FM discriminator to a general FM input is analysed on the assumption that the zero crossing of the input signal initiates impulses which are applied to a low pass filter. The boundaries between which the output voltage of that filter is varying are evaluated. The faithful decoding may start after an initial settling-down period which is often found to be s...

  • A High-Speed, Airborne Digital Data Acquisition System

    Publication Year: 1959, Page(s):117 - 122
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1246 KB)

    This paper describes a transitorized airborne PCM/FM data acquisition system. The prototype version of this system has, in the past few months, been subjected to a flight evaluation program, and the final version is now in the process of assembly and test. The system is primarily digital; however, the technical areas of switching and amplification of low-level analog signals will be emphasized and... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3219 KB)

    This paper describes a system of data editing with provisions for computer entry of flight test data as acquired by an integrated digital data system. Also described are system concepts that must be dealt with in solving problems incident to these activities. The computer station described is provided with editing control facilities that permit selection of the desired prime and commutated channel... View full abstract»

  • The Use of a Fractional Bi-Stable Multivibrator Counter in the Design of an Automatic Discriminator Calibrator

    This paper discusses the approach used in the design of an automatic discriminator calibrator system. This design led to analysis of the use of bi-stable multibrators to obtain a fractional countdown of the output frequency of a crystal oscillator. The final counter waveform is filtered to extract only a sinusoidal component of the square wave from the counters. Some properties of fractional count... View full abstract»

  • Analysis of Multiplex Error in FM/FM and PAM/FM/FM Telemetry

    Cited by:  Papers (2)

    The primary object of the work described in this paper is to establish and delineate a procedure for the calculation of certain errors associated with the performance of FM/FM and/or PAM/FM/FM multiplex telemetry systems. The errors considered are those that are produced in a channel of the multiplex resulting from arbitrary frequency and phase selective networks, and those resulting from the inte...

  • Comments Relative to the Application of PCM to Aircraft Flight Testing

    Publication Year: 1959, Page(s):148 - 153
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1719 KB)

    The pending widespread use planned for PCM telemetry has caused some confusion in the area of PCM or digital standards. It is the purpose of this paper to discuss proposed PCM standards on a realistic basis and to show by example the organization of an integrated digital flight test system using these standards. Consideration is given to the variety of testing applications and ultimate usage of di... View full abstract»
