AbstractDue to the increased complexity and capabilities of modern missile telemetry systems, it has become increasingly difficult to provide an effective yet flexible simulation capability for the verification and validation of PCM decommutation systems. Control Data Corporation, under contract with the Space and Missile Test Center (SAMTEC) at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, recently completed the development of a powerful and flexible simulation system utilizing a CDC 3300 computer. This Telemetry Decom Validation System (TDVS) now allows personnel to develop a simulated PCM data stream using a telemetry-oriented compiler to generate telemetry instructions. The compiled program can then be executed in a microprogrammable processor which generates the defined PCM stream through the interpretation of the specially designed instruction set output by the compiler. Data can be simulated at rates up to 2 megabits using any of the seven IRIG code conventions or Miller Code.
