Missile-Test Telemetry & Data acquisition

The challenging needs of missile applications have been at the center of Safran Data Systems' developments since the 1980s.Today, we are proud to be serving dozens of missile programmes as well as guided-bombs or sounding rockets around the world.


Ultra compact data acquisition unit: CMA

CMA, an ultra modular and compact Data Acquisition Unit (DAU)

CMA is Safran Data System's best Commercial Off The Shelf solution for launchers & missile testing and telemetry. CMA benefits from a common highly ruggedized platform specially designed for the extreme environment of missiles while keeping high quality and accurate measurements.

Safran Data Systems' DAU is an ideal fit for data acquisitions in harsh environments and tiny areas. CMA has the smallest effective size per sensor ratio available and offers highly versatile acquisition modules to easily tailor the instrumentation of each specific use case. Acquisition modules perform highly accurate measurement, signal conditioning, serial interface, bus monitoring. Its functional modules also offer recording, GPS reception, tailored interfaces and built-in transmitter allowing an all-in-one-box implementation. The on-board processing module (OBP) can provide pre-processing of data and even fully-programmable command and control interfaces to an external system.

SDTX Safran Data Systems

SDTX - Transmitters

Get a reliable telemetry link in the extrem environment of a launcher thanks to SDTX transmitters.

SDTX Transmitters are the new digital telemetry transmitter family based on compact SDR based technology. It provides a broad support of existing and future standard : IRIG-106 and CCSDS.

SDTX’s form factor allows for stand-alone operation, or its insertion into a CMA or XMA stack for more compactness of the installation.

Supported bands of the transmitters are classical S and C telemetry band, but as well the Inmarsat L Band for enabling Satellite-based Telemetry on-board Launch Vehicle.

Satellite-based Telemetry Solution

Safran Data Systems, in partnership with Inmarsat, is working on bringing to customers Satellite-based Telemetry through its DTRDM Transmitter.

By using existing geostationary satellite as telemetry relay, DTRDM Transmitter allows ensuring a telemetry link during the whole trajectory of the launcher without requiring ground station in remote or inaccessible area of Earth.

- Definition of network connections

- Data acquisition (sensors and digital buses) defined at high and low level, with import function

- Manual or automatic generation of output streams: PCM IRIG-106 Ch4, IRIG-106 Ch10, IRIG-106 Ch7, IENA or DAR

- Setting up the complete system

- Real-time control of the health of each component of the solution down to measurement channel status

- Real-time overview of acquired data (quicklook)

- Recording of raw data

Any questions?
On-board instrumentation management & control software: eZ Operation

eZ Operation, an on-board instrumentation management & control software

The eZ Operation software is an advanced tool for centralized supervision and control of complex test systems from an onboard operator station:

- Optimized set-up of complex networks, acquisition units, recorders and switches

- Real-time supervision through a synoptic view of the system: supervision of each acquisition unit, recorder, switch, as well as through the network

- Main system commands on the same screen

- Synthesis of supervision data: generation of report files including the alarms and events reported, as well as the status of each equipment

- Real-time preview of the complete list of acquisitions (analog and digital)

- Centralized system monitoring

Data display and processing software: eZ Processing / Advantys

eZ Processing / Advantys, a data display and processing software

eZ Processing / Advantys offers advanced functions for data display and processing:

- Real-time visualization of raw or processed parameters, on board or on the ground, in a user configurable graphical format

- Data replay with customized visualizations - Extraction of parameters in real time (or from a records) and conversion into engineering units with (or without) the application of a calibration function

- Generation of processed parameters by creating user functions in C language

- Generation of configurable user alarms on parameter value limits

- Recording of raw or processed data for further replay

- Automatic import of conversion tables by eZ SetUp software, the user can then focus on data analysis without risk of error
