TTC RTAS-3000-1 Telemetry Re-Radiation System – C Band
The RTAS-3000-1 is a general-purpose re-radiation (rad) system that receives and transmits missile telemetry from each of the missile bays on an aircraft. The RTAS receives standard telemetry transmission and retransmits on an alternate telemetry frequency band. The system is self-contained and mounted using environmental isolators. A re-rad ground support system (GSE) is available to verify the operation of the re-Rad RF link at the aircraft prior to the test mission, gathering pre-flight data and confirming the operation.
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 designs 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.
