Certain real-time meteorological data that can be retrieved by satellite are extremely useful for Army battlefield operations. To effectively and efficiently implement these data requires special characteristics for the satellite-to-ground telemetry link. The general description of such a telemetry system is presented. A subsystem of the satellite telemetry system is proposed that allows collection of surface meteorological data for relaying to users in addition to the satellite-retrieved data. Existing technology and systems are used as the basis for the concept and design.
