AbstractThe Inertial Upper Stage (IUS) system is intended for DOD and NASA space vehicle (S/V) launches from the Shuttle Orbiter. Prior to and during the IUS launch, commands must be transmitted to the S/V and IUS and the telemetry data must be communicated to the Orbiter. This paper describes the communication links between the IUS and the Orbiter, with particular emphasis on the RF link equipment and performance. The transponder equipment carried on board the IUS system is also described.
