Abstract:
Today's large missile testing ranges are demanding sophisticated processing and displays of telemetry data for real-time decisions. These present-day requirements created a need for better data handling and processing than those of the past. These requirements are driven by higher data rates, more complex formats, and increased real-time decision making (i.e., flight safety area). White Sands Missile Range's (WSMR's) initial real-time Telemetry Data Processing System was provided by IBM in 1969. This system was augmented several times by adding higher-speed telemetry front ends and preprocessors. However, this was not adequate to keep pace with requirements for data processing and display at WSMR. Presently, WSMR has Fairchild Weston Systems, Inc. (FWSI) under contract for a new Telemetry Data Handling System. This FWSI system will support WSMR's anticipated demands for now, for the next decade's planned growth, and beyond. This paper defines data-handling tasks at WSMR, explains how these tasks were handled in the past, and how they are presently handled. Next, the new system is described explaining how it fits into WSMR's present and future plans; and how it provides all the telemetry data handling, storage, processing, and display capabilities to support these tasks. Both hardware and software are discussed for this totally turn-key operating system.
