    Publication Year: 1957, Page(s):1 - 13
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (20930 KB)

    The microwave link to be described operates in the 4-KMC frequency region and can be set up for any desired bandwidth between 40 to 250 megacycles. In its present state, the telemetering system uses a pulsed-frequency modulated carrier obtained by use of either a klystron or a voltage-tuneable magnetron. The receiver directly amplifies the carrier to a level of +27 DBM where it is amplitude... View full abstract»

  • The transmission of poise width modulated signals over restricted bandwidth systems

    Publication Year: 1957, Page(s):1 - 4
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (723 KB)

    The apparent anomaly of transmitting FW signals, with pulse lengths as short as 90 microseconds, over restricted bandwidth systems with bandwidths in the order of 3 kc's, are discussed. It has been shown that in reality, data is transmitted not as pulses of absolute length, but of relative length. However, resolution errors introduced using the techniques described do result in some increase in ji... View full abstract»

    The PDM portion of a PDM-FM telemeter system for missile operation is described with respect to design philosophy. The system approach has been used in order to produce a compatible marriage of circuitry to the required input and output devices. This has been particularly profitable in the case of the commutator and 70 kc transistor subcarrier oscillator. Transistor circuits have been applied in a... View full abstract»

    A Low-Level Electronic Subcommutator has been designed and developed by Radiation, Inc. This subcommutator (or commutator) uses the low-level switch described1 at the 1957 IRE National Convention and was a parallel development with the switch. Semiconductor devices were used extensively throughout the subcommutator, thus permitting miniaturization and ruggedization even though the circu... View full abstract»

    The past few years have seen rapid strides in the understanding and use of digital systems. In the field of telemetry, pulse code modulation systems have been developed and tested with excellent results. An airborne PCM system is made up of the analog pickup devices, a switch or multiplexer for sampling more than one channel, an analog-to-digital converter, and an rf transmitter. The objective of ...

    Program progress of hypersonic missiles and satellites is dependent upon advances in the telemetering art, for instrumentation must be functional under the imposition of severe environmental extremes. Recently, a solid state FM-FM telemetering system has been developed that is immune to shock and vibration of considerable magnitude. Transistorized units of the solid state system described in this ... View full abstract»

    On September 1, 1955, the Glenn L. Martin Company received the first section of Telemetering Ground equipment for aircraft operation. (slide) Two months later this equipment was used as a ground source for collecting data from a new model aircraft on its initial flight. Although the company has been using Telemetering as a data collecting medium on missiles for several years, the problems encounte... View full abstract»

    The tremendous changes in data handling technique encountered over the past few years have opened many new opportunities for the increasingly effective use of telemetering. Many of the advances which have been made, however, pertain directly to the language used by the data processing equipment. This paper discusses the use of both analog and digital data handling with attention to accuracy, frequ... View full abstract»

    The Northrop oscillograph reader is an automatic device designed and built to eliminate the previously laborious task of reducing data gathered from telemetering and other engineering tests. Most of the members of this convention are in fields of engineering that require oscillographic recording as a means of capturing data. It is assumed that most engineers are familiar with the old inaccurate sy... View full abstract»

    All too soon the industry will be faced with the problem of transmitting telemeter data over previously unconsidered enormous distances. The flight of an exploratory vehicle which will circle the moon before returning to earth is a definite possibility within the next ten years. The adaptation and refinement of presently available techniques for telemetry is shown to provide a number of feasible p... View full abstract»
