Abstract:

This report describes the design, implementation, testing and operation of a subminiature telemetry SMT configuration tool. The configuration tool is comprised of software and hardware components. The software, written in Microsoft Visual Basic Version 4.0, offers a graphical user interface for specifying SMT configurations. It also includes a function for automating the tedious task of setting up a telemetry frame structure. The program features automatic report generation, programming of the SMT devices and setting up a test environment to configure and verify correct operation of the SMT devices in a laboratory before going out in the field. The hardware includes a programming interface between a PC and an SMT device and a programmable test signal generator to test and verify the correct SMT configuration. The SMT configuration tool has reduced a labour skilled intensive process to an automated, efficient and user friendly computer aided approach. The tool has been used in realistic environments to Support test and evaluation missions of high-tech state-of-the-art conventional armament.
