Abstract:
Current telemetry instrumentation systems are subject to space and weight limitations for use in bombs, dispensers, submunitions, projectiles and other tactical weapon systems. It is not now feasible to instrument submunitions and projectiles for weapon effectiveness data because state-of-the-art telemetry devices cannot be rapidly and cost effectively installed in unmodified munitions. Furthermore, aircraft modifications for flutter/loads testing are extremely expensive and time consuming. This program will develop a low cost telemetry chip-set consisting of integrated sensors, signal conditioning, transmitters and encryptors. “Peel-and-Stick” (See Figure 1) telemetry devices, containing a specific chip-set with integrated sensors, a battery, and antenna in an extremely small package, will also be developed. Subminiature Telemetry Technology (SMT) will directly impact all future tactical submunition development programs during pre-production RDT&E. This program will also support compatibility and safe separation testing done in the Air Force SEEK EAGLE program. Conventional and kinetic energy projectile programs and advanced missile programs will have long-term benefit. Telemetry and encryption designs developed in this program will advance the state-of-the-art in telemetry fabrication from hybrid to monolithic providing smaller, more shock resistant systems at a much lower cost. Subminiature telemetry devices could be integrated with the weapon system during its development allowing for a non-destructive, non-contaminating test of the system. This will greatly reduce the cost and logistics of determining weapon readiness and health status during long time periods of storage.
