Rugged, airborne telemetry and tracking systems
for aerospace and defense applications.


Airborne Telemetry Solutions are used for remote sensing and data transmission. Telemetry tracking systems measure and collect data from physically inaccessible points and transmit them to a receiver for monitoring, recording and analysis. Airborne Telemetry Tracking Systems use several mediums for the transmission of captured data to the host system, viz., air, space, copper wire, or a fiber cable, depending on the application. 

Telemetry is the process of gathering and processing critical information onboard spacecraft, aircraft, projectiles and UAVs. Airborne Telemetry solutions are lightweight, portable systems that can be utilized to accurately acquire, transmit, and record engine data and other parameters such as velocity, altitude, temperature, etc. These parameters are measured and transmitted via Telemetry Tracking Systems to a distant station where they are displayed, recorded and analyzed.
