Abstract : Miniature telemetry systems to instrument projectiles and ejection payloads have routinely survived accelerations up to 60,000 g and transmitted data from thermistors, accelerometers, and solar sensors. Subassemblies such as VCO's, commutators, and FM transmitters operating at VHF are described. A meteorological ejection payload to measure temperature in the earth's atmosphere is described in detail. The result of an on-board roll rate measurement are presented. The application of tested component subassemblies to the problem of vehicle dynamics instrumentation is discussed. (Author)
