This standard provides the ranges with a standards-based solution for the ground transport of serial streaming telemetry from multiple vendors and an improvement in cost competitiveness. Chapter 4 contains recommendations for implementing the ground network. Two appendixes provide information for TMoIP implementation. Appendix F provides additional insight into the management aspects of TMoIP. Appendix G, while not in the scope of the TMoIP requirements, provides information to the user to enable the deployment of a network infrastructure that supports the TMoIP implementation. Any range that uses telemetry will benefit from this standard. The purpose of the TTG effort is the identification of the needs of the Major Range and Test Facility Base MRTFB community for telemetry TM transmission and development of a standard to ensure future interoperability of commercial solutions. This document presents a common standard for use by industry to ensure interoperability and a more cost effective solution for the ranges. Use of this document will also eliminate the need to rely on a single source for critical equipment in the support of range missions within the MRTFB. This document provides specifications and guidance for the ground network segments, which includes the telemetry TM terminal, network processor, and the ground network subsystems of a TM range network. This document is for use by equipment vendors in designing products that enable the transport of TM data over Internet Protocol IP networks. The TMoIP solution, discussed in Chapter 2, addresses the ground network elements listed below. The ground network functional blocks are discussed in detail in subsequent chapters. The requirements and recommendations for the TM terminal and network processor elements are located in Chapter 3. Chapter 4 addresses the ground network implementation via a set of recommendations regarding implementation elements that will enhance the robustness of the TMoIP solution.
