Abstract:

The satellite program at the Applied Physics Laboratory, The Johns Hopkins University is briefly described with emphasis on the telemetry and data processing requirements and instrumentation. The telemetry modulation systems used in the APL satellites include FMPM, PDMFMPM, PAMFMPM, and PCMFMPM. The telemetry data are processed with the aid of a digital computer to automatically produce numerical listings or graphical plots. Some of the results obtained through the processing of satellite telemetry data are presented. This paper originally was presented at the International Telemetering Conference held from September 23 to 27, 1963, in London, England. Conference sessions were held at the headquarters of the Institute of Electrical Engineers, Savoy Place, and exhibits were shown at the New London Hilton Hotel. The paper has been published in Volume One of the Proceedings of the Conference. Author
