AbstractThis paper describes the progress made by the Wright Laboratory Armament Directorate Instrumentation Technology Branch in developing Subminiature Instrumentation Technologies. These advancements will be explained relative to the overall scope of the Subminiature Instrumentation efforts. The goal of these efforts is a DOD depot capability to provide low cost, non-intrusive telemetry instrumentation for any weapon system. The concept of developing a "chip-set" of monolithic modules to allow quick design and fabrication of a specific telemetry package, has been implemented with the development of subminiature telemetry. Today, the telemetry package with 128 digital and 64 analog channels, 200kbs up to 10Mbs data rates, with programmable functions, is approximately 2 inches X 2 inches X .25 inches and weighs about 50 grams. Encryption is available and provisions are being made to transmit video in the same module. This technology is being pursued as the standard for all air-to-air and air-to-ground telemetry systems.
