Abstract
ABSTRACT: The overall program objective is to utilize the best available technologies to successfully develop the concept and design of a state of the art C-Band telemetry transmitter that meets or exceeds the performance qualification parameters and size constraints detailed in the AF12-BT07 solicitation. Specifically, the objective of the entire two-phase program is to develop, test, and deliver flight-capable prototypes of our 2.0 and 1.3 cubic inch transmitters that operate in C-band. BENEFIT: Reductions and reallocations of telemetry spectrum have forced the DoD test ranges to adapt to operation in more restricted and less desirable frequency spectrum. Telemetering systems must evolve to address these frequency allocation changes, while retaining operational characteristics that are vital to mission success. The design and implementation of miniaturized, power efficient telemetry transmitters capable of operation across the three C-Band frequency ranges (4400-4950, 5091-5250, and 5925-6700 MHz) would provide a substantial contribution to the successful migration towards mandated telemetry spectrum allocation changes. The proposed effort leads to precisely this end result.
