Abstract:

Interrange and intrarange participation in launch, tracking, and recovery missions makes it mandatory to transmit count status information for visual display as well as for controlling event timers or sequencers. This standard defines the characteristics of four visual count status code formats. Each permissible code format is assigned a numerical designator, so users can define the particular code format being used. This standard reflects the state of the art and is not intended to constrain research and development in the area. This standard will be revised as required. This standard describes a family of four serial Event Count Status ECS codes with formats containing coded expressions or words and subwords within a 1 second time frame. The basic intended use of these codes is to provide visual count status information however, the codes can be used for computer input to correlate data with time or with count status. Also, if desired, the codes can be used to not only drive visual displays but to turn on equipment such as cameras and recorders. The application of these codes is at the discretion of the user range or facility. These codes can be software and hardware generated and controlled depending on the user requirement and application.
