AbstractThe development of a ballistic missile or satellite launcher requires a great number of varied measurements distributed right over the missile. The PCM CANNES system is basically featured by its decentralized structure in which a programmable unit provides remote management, through a 1 Mbit/s digital link, of the peripheral units acquiring the data. This structure offers the advantages of modularity, flexible use and easy adaptation to specific requirements. A new unit in process of development, named UCDA, will considerably increase the performance of the system whilst ensuring perfect compatibility with the existing peripheral unit.
