TTC RTAS-2000 Telemetry Re-Radiation System

The RTAS-2000 telemetry re-radiation system provides the user with a state-of-the-art, four-channel, RF system designed to excite the flight termination UHF commands to a telemetry system, receive the telemetry, and re-radiate the baseband telemetry data on a different frequency band. The system utilizes multi-modulation technology that allows the user to receive the telemetry in one center frequency and format while retransmitting in a different frequency band and modulation scheme.

Reducing Time and Cost of Ordnance Testing with Modern Transponder Designs

Flight safety officers need to accurately track targets, experimental aircraft, and ordnance in real-time during development and sample tests and during live firing exercises to inform any flight termination decisions. Using transponders to provide location data by responding to radar signals has been proven reliable, but traditional transponders employ fixed frequency technologies and older design are creating scheduling, time, and cost issues. This white paper examines how the use of modern transponders can reduce setup time, lower costs, and require less future planning and maintenance than traditional designs.
