DTS-100-SLR - Slant Range Unit
DTS-100-SLR is a Slant Range equipment able to measure the radial distance between the rocket and the telemetry station.
DTS-100-SLR calculates the distance based on the delay of the telemetry signal reception from the rocket, which is proportional to the position of the rocket related to the ground telemetry antenna. When a tracking antenna azimuth and elevation angles are incorporated, a payload trajectory can be generated and plotted in real time over Google Earth.
DTS-100-SLR has an internal PCM Decommutator witch decodes and synchronizes (locks) the received telemetry data, identifying a sync code according the IRIG-106 standard.
An ultra high stable time reference consisting of a oven controlled crystal oscillator OCXO is provided for a reference generator.
