Abstract
This Phase I SBIR program is intended to provide a new and highly cost effective solution for Air Force local area flight test telemetry requirements. Intentionally designing for reuse of the technology for commercial applications maintains availability through periods of low ordering. It shall be designed as an extensive to Cleveland Medical Devices existing MircoRadio technology, allowing an extemely effecient design with a low per unit cost. Special designs allow the system to meet enviromental requirements by making maximum use of inexpensive COTS technology. Intended range is up to 50 miles, with data range of 100KB or greater, and an enviromental temperature range of -51 to +93 deg. C. The frequency band shall be 902 to 928, 2310 to 2360, or 2400 to 2483.5 MHz. The system consists of the MicroRadio Telemetry Transceiver and Sensor (MTTS) at the airborne end. The base station shall consist of a software controlled transceiver with RS-232 link for standard PC control and databasing.
