AbstractPortable Telemetry Data Receive/Record Sets (TDRRS) are temporarily installed in Navy ships to record and display data from tactical surface-to-air and surface-to-surface missiles (e.g., STANDARD, HARPOON, TOMAHAWK and SEA SPARROW). The Arleigh Burke DDG 51 AEGIS class Destroyer is the fleet’s newest Man-of-War. The first ship of this class, the USS Arleigh Burke (DDG 51), was recently commissioned on 4 July 1991. Permanent telemetry data RF and control transmission cabling systems will be installed in these Destroyers. The purpose of the dedicated cabling system is to deliver high quality telemetry data to the portable TDRRS. A dedicated quality interface guarantees reliable communications with the STANDARD Missile (SM) 2 during the pre-exit and initial airborne stages during missile launched from the ship’s Vertical Launch System (VLS). Previous ship classes depended on portable cables and equipment to provide for this function. Cables were brought through hatchways and bulkheads to the telemetry receiving and recording equipments. The DDG 51 AEGIS Class Destroyer uses a Collective Protection System (CPS) that provides for differential inside air pressure that is greater than the outside air pressure. This is intended to prevent chemical, biological, and nuclear contamination from entering the ship. To preserve CPS integrity, telemetry cabling is routed through airtight bulkhead connectors. This paper introduces the new integrated shipboard telemetry cable interface and the recently developed fleet telemetry receive and record system. Discussions will be provided on the SM 2 Vertical Launch System telemetry data transfer and the latest state-of-the-art receive and record equipment installed on the Arleigh Burke DDG 51 AEGIS Class Destroyers.
