DTS-100-TSLR - Telemetry Slant Range Unit

DTS-100-TSLR is a dual system for telemetry data acquisition capable of decoding  IRIG-106 PCM telemetry data and a Slant Range unit able to measure the radial distance between the rocket and the telemetry station.

Main Features:


  • Alternative to radar systems when  receiving angular             position from a tracking antenna
  • IRIG 106 Class II Compliance
  • Telemetry Data Acquisition
  • High speed operation up to 10 Mbps
  • Miniature rugged construction
  • IRIG-B time acquisition
  • Ethernet Gigabit
  • Serial Async USB port
  • Outputs GPS position (NMEA 0183)
  • One PCM and trajectory simulator
  • Programmable data stored in non-volatile memory
  • Ultra high stable OCXO time reference




DTS-100-TSLR combines the functions of the DTS-100 PCM Decommutator and DTS-100-SLR Slant Range Unit in a single equipment.

The distance is calculated 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.

In addition, DTS-100-TSLR allows for acquiring and viewing telemetry data through graphs and tables. It permits real-time monitoring of parameters and events, local recording, playback and data reduction for future data analysis.

Serial UART to USB outputs GPS position (NMEA 0183) from asynchronous data embedded in the PCM telemetry stream. The GPS position can optionally control angular position of ground tracking antennas.

DTS-100-TSLR may be directly plugged to the Ethernet network and delivers complete telemetry frames to the destination IPs.
