Range / Launch Site Systems

  • Network Gateways correlate and route serial data and time over IP networks, then regenerate that serial data and time at one or more sites.

  • Data Acquisition Applications capture, process, display, and record from sensors and other data sources.

  • Range Data Systems capture, process, record, route, and display data from telemetry sources.

Range Data Systems

Full Path Telemetry Processing

Antenna to User: RF over ethernet, software radios, high speed processing, and browser based displays.

Consolidate Equipment

One system for processing, recording, distribution, and visualization.

Security Hardened & High Availability

Red Hat Enterprise Linux with IA hardening and support. Support for high redundancy configurations.

Mission Critical Data Acquisition

High Availability, High Performance

Distributed network architecture handles thousands of channels with <10 millisecond end-to-end latency.

Flexible I/O

Analog, discrete, serial, network, and custom sensor interfaces leverage commercial hardware coupled with our SOFTLINK software.

Data Commutation and Distribution

Raw and Engineering Unit (EU) data from the Current Value Table is commutated into network packets or PCM streams.

Data Processing, Recording, and Display

Engineering Unit and custom algorithm processing, record/playback of raw and EU data, craft data displays with browser based tools.

Network Gateways

Serial Over IP

Multiplex and demultiplex serial data streams between multiple sites. Simultaneous input and output streams from the same system.

Time-Data Correlation

Regenerated serial data streams have sub-microsecond time-data correlation (with a precision timing source).

Suite of Network Protocols

Use a combination of TCP, UDP, PGM, and our WAN Forward Error Correction to meet latency, QoS, and bandwidth constraints.
