Telemetry Data Processing & Display

Model 2900AP Real-time Telemetry Data Processor
Acroamatics’ Model 2900AP TDP systems easily accommodate requirements that range from one to eight (8) IRIG 106 Chapter 4 Type 1 & 2 PCM stream decommutation, real-time EU processing, and analysis. Each individual telemetry input stream is definable as to its unique stream attributes, such as rate and format definition, lossless PCM format switching, conditional async embedded frame decommutation, packet protocol PCM processing (CCSDS) and merged low-latency EU and derived processing. COTS 2900AP hardware and system desktop management software deliver a uniquely powerful and flexible Windows application independent end-to-end low latency telemetry processing solution.

A variety of state-of-the-art Acroamatics PCI form factor TM acquisition, formatting, and processing modules provide a scalable, integrated low latency card embedded processor framework from which to create the optimum range and engineering lab telemetry processing and data delivery tool. User friendly Acroamatics Telemetry Software Suite desktop tools enable users to set-up TDP processing modules to handle even the most complex PCM formats in real-time with ease, delivering thousands of complex derived polynomial (to 7th order) values and supporting critical safety of range output functions with deterministic reliability and accuracy.

Overview
The Acroamatics 2900AP Telemetry Data Processor (TDP) provides ample processing power to meet current and future system real-time mission data display, recording and networked data services.
Each 2900AP TDP is:

  • Built to comply with PCI bus standards — accepts standard PCI cards of all types
  • Configured to operate with your choice of Windows 7 or Windows 10 DOD approved 64-bit host operating system (SHB & TPM compatible)
  • Meets requirements ranging from single stream instrumentation lab to multi stream range control room and mission data center telemetry server configurations
  • Scalable to accommodate simple to extremely complex low latency PCM decommutation, processing, recording and networked data services

By combining high-performance Acroamatics telemetry interface and processing cards with select 3rd party PCI modules we have enabled the Model 2900AP TDP to support a wide variety of “turn-key” range and lab telemetry configurations.Acroamatics Telemetry System Suite (ATSS)

  • Includes GUI applications to set up and operate the range of system hardware configurations
  • Instantly configures the system using project setup libraries managed by ATSS, or use Excel or TDP script files to define their own mission TDP configuration management scheme
  • Configure and initiate mission support operations from the Mission Console menu, or Control individual TDP functions through specific GUI tools

PCI Chassis
The standard Model 2900AP is based on a purpose-designed, rugged industrial 4U RETMA rack-mounted 12-slot PCI chassis configured to specifically meet the demands of rigorous T&E TM groundstation & portable control room applications.
