Abstract:

A feasibility model of an SFM data correlator has been constructed which performs the discrete equivalent of the correlation integration required at the receiving terminal of a PCMSFM communication system. Techniques which lend themselves to miniaturization were used in designing the model so that the correlator would be practicable in an aerospace environment. The correlator is all-electronic and uses a hybrid computer with a digital shift register and analog multipliers. Data rates from d-c to 200,000 bitssec are possible. Construction details are given and a brief discussion of signal design is included. Preliminary testing indicates that the correlator operates as expected. If a generator can be acquired, then extensive testing and experimenting can be done. Author
