AbstractThe Telemetry Group of the Range Commanders Council has provided suggested standards for transmission of telemetry data. These standards were necessary to promote compatibility of operational equipment at the respective Test and Evaluation ranges. For digital transmission, the applicable standards define the frame and word formats necessary for range compatibility. These standards were developed for acquisition of multiple analog and bi-level signals and provided a relatively straight forward means of developing an aggregate, time-division multiplexed (TDM), serial, data stream which includes the information necessary to reconstruct the signals at the ground station prior to analysis. The Inter-Range Instrumentation Group (IRIG) formats are, by design, periodic and form a matrix of "words" which are preassigned to each and every signal being encoded and transmitted. As all the original information is continuous in nature, the encoder must sample each of the channels in their proper sequence and place the sampled data in its respective time slot. This paper will address some of the buffering techniques used to transmit data in an integrated IRIG format. We will then address an alternate solution to transmitting computer data for ground based analysis and processing, i.e., transmission of data using commercial type modems.
