Abstract:

Recent changes in spectrum availability as well as higher demands for spectrum have motivated the development of telemetry transmit systems capable of fully operating over both L and S telemetry bands. However enabling operation within these two bands poses new problems in system design. This report presents a prototype system capable of operating between 1.4 and 2.4 GHz, which supports continuous phase modulation CPM waveforms such as pulse code modulation PCM, frequency modulation FM, and shaped offset quadrature phase shift keying SOQPSK. The system architecture is detailed, and the prototype performance is discussed.
