Abstract:

This report presents three telemetry techniques demonstrated on an affordable precision mortar that allowed the guidance, navigation, and control GNC system to be effectively analyzed. The first is a technique for the real-time integration and extraction of GPS data into a sensor telemetry stream. The second is a method for increasing telemetry bandwidth by saving a short period of high rate data and then broadcasting it over the rest of the flight test. Lastly an on-board data storage implementation using a MicroSD card is presented.
