what you will see and hear
What You Will See and Hear
  • A video describing how aerospace vehicles are tested, what telemetry is and how telemetry is used
  • A brief view of how telemetry is used around the world
  • A brief description of how technology is used to send the telemetry measurement data to the ground station in the most spectrally efficient manner possible
what is telemetry
What is Telemetry?
  • Telemetry : The process ofmeasuring at a distance.
  • Aeronautical telemetry: Theprocess of makingmeasurements on an aeronautical vehicleand sending those measurements to adistant locationfor analysis






If it is ORANGE it is flight test measurement

Time for the Cinema!

Aeronautical Telemetry

Science and Telemetry Goes Global…Local changes of environmental parameters have a world-wide impactWide-area telemetry networks needed to collect data from e.g. remote field stations, balloons, buoys, sounding rockets, UAVSpecific ranges for launching, science observations and data collection worldwide available

telemetry inevitable in global missions
Telemetry Inevitable in Global Missions

Platforms on balloon, sounding rocket and UAV required for

In situ-measurements & callibration of satellite and ground borne instruments

Examples of important disciplines :

  • Geophysics

Atmosphere, Land , Sea, Ice Research

  • Biology

Animal behaviour & wildlife research

  • Remote Medical Supervision

patient monitoring e.g. at expeditions („bush telemetry“)

science missions requiring wideband tm
Science Missions Requiring Wideband TM

Existing LEO-satellite data collection platforms only for narrow band data transmission (e.g. Argos, Orbcomm) available

Onboard storage capacity limited by space and weight, data compression & reduction of science data onboard critical

Data required on ground mostly in near-realtime


High-resolution science instruments, like imaging sensors, spectrometers, carried as Balloon, Sounding Rocket or UAV- payload need wideband telemetry links to fulfill their future missions
