Abstract:
Telemetry support has been a component of the instrumentation test support structure at Kwajalein Missile Range (KMR) for nearly 40 years. From a limited initial suite of manually pointed telemetry antennas, the Range has grown to include nine tracking antennas and four fixed receiving antennas. This paper describes the current modernization program at KMR that will include nine new telemetry trackers and five fixed antennas that will be networked and controlled via fiber optic links from a newly established telemetry control center on the island of Kwajalein. These upgrades will reduce operational cost and institute efficiencies, while continuing to meet Range Users’ growing requirements.
