Abstract:
The requirement for monitoring the physiological functions of the test subject in weightlessness simulation activities coupled with the advantages of using telemetry for such monitoring led to the development of a biotelemetry system. One valuable technique for simulation of weightlessness uses the neutral buoyancy obtained by having the subject under water, which leads to a requirement that the telemetry system work in this medium. Previous underwater telemetry systems have usually used ultrasonic carriers. The system described in this paper is unique in providing a multiple channel underwater telemetry system using an electromagnetic carrier. The development of transducers used with this system to provide information on the work load Imposed by various simulation tasks is also described.
