Missile flight test telemetry has been performed at S band (2200 2395 MHz) since the 1960s. In 2007, Department of Defense test ranges acquired access to new C-band frequency ranges (4400 4950 and 5091 5150 MHz). While these new bands offer a substantial increase in the total bandwidth available for flight test telemetry, traditional S-band operations will continue for many years, due in part to the fact that S-band receiving equipment is ubiquitous. A transmitter that simultaneously operated in both S and C bands would be a powerful tool for meeting current and future missile flight test telemetry needs. The proposed effort leads to precisely this end result. Approved for Public Release 14-MDA-7739 (18 March 14).
