Abstract
AN OUTLINE FOR THE DESIGN OF A TRANSPORTABLE HIGH SPEED TELEMETRY TRACKING SYSTEM IS DESCRIBED. THE TRANSPORTABLE SYSTEM RECEIVES S-BAND TELEMETRY DATA, DETERMINES THE ACTUAL TRAJECTORY, PROVIDES UPLINK CONTROL OF PAYLOADS, AND PROVIDES FLIGHT TERMINATION CAPABILITY. TWO SYSTEMS ARE REQUIRED TO SATISFY THE RANGE SAFETY REQUIREMENTS FOR REDUNDANCY. EACH SYSTEM CONSISTS OF AN ANTENNA MOUNTED TO A TWO-AXIS-PEDESTAL. THE DATA IS PASSED TO RECORDING AND DATA ANALYSIS EQUIPMENT MOUNTED IN AN EQUIPMENT SHELTER. A SUITABLE COMPUTER PROVIDES SLANT RANGE, ROCKET TRAJECTORY, AND PROJECTED IMPACT ZONES FOR RANGE SAFETY. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS AND ACCURACIES ARE DETERMINED AS PART OF THIS EFFORT.
