Abstract:

The intent of this document is to provide commonality for testing methodology of all DoD and National Aeronautics and Space Administration facilities. Compliance with the test requirements in this document will eliminate confusion of testing requirements among the national test ranges and facilities. This release of the RCC Document 118 Volume 2 reflects the efforts undertaken by the RCC Telemetry Group Radio Frequency Systems committee for completion of Tasks TG-152, TG-153, TG-157, and TG-162. Specifically, Task TG-152, Test Methods for Space-Time Coded Systems, adds a new chapter Chapter 9 to provide procedures for testing space-time coded hardware. Task TG-153, Test Methods for Low-Density Parity-Check Codes for Telemetry Systems, adds another new chapter Chapter 8 to provide procedures for testing low-density parity-check coded hardware. Task TG-157, Solar Flux Density Interpolation for Solar Calibration, updates sections 1.11 and 1.12 to provide an alternative method for calculating NOAA solar flux density to give more accurate results especially critical for operating at C-band frequencies. Finally, Task TG-162, Dynamic Telemetry Antenna Motion Assessment, adds a new section Section 1.13 to provide a test method for determining and assessing the dynamic motion and target tracking abilities of telemetry ground station antennas.
