Miniature Telemetry: Telemetry Solutions

Overview

The Miniature Integrated Telemetry Encoder from Mistral is developed for a power range of 1W to 2W telemetry application. With size of 60mm x 60mm x 80mm, the module is smaller than a coffee mug. The Miniature Telemetry module demonstrates system integration of multi-channel PCM encoder, 1W transmitter, 1.5Ah Li-ion battery pack and 11-channel MEM sensor.

Mistral has developed various rugged telemetry modules for flight/mission critical applications, along with various decoder software, for ground station data extractions.

Telemetry is a remote sensing technique wherein parameters such as velocity, altitude, temperature, etc. are measured, and the results transmitted to a distant station where they are displayed, recorded and analyzed. The transmission media may be air, space, copper wire or fiber cable, depending on the application.
