Abstract : The components and assembly of compact portable FM/FM telemetry ground stations are described. The designs of both ground and airborne units associated with telemetry systems and the test and calibration of telemetry systems are presented. Some modifications made to commerically purchased items to extend their use for special applications are described. Systems for inflight control of events through timers and ground command are described. Some studies and experiments on utilizing the telemetry to obtain the trajectories of rockets are discussed. An investigation of the state of the art of UHF telemetry systems is discussed. (Author)
