Abstract : The MATS transponder was designed to be compact, lightweight and efficient for use in a satellite configuration. The transponder consists of a receiver and a transmitter for accepting ranging, timing and command information from a ground station complex and transmitting the ranging and timing information, on two offset carriers, back to the ground station complex. In addition, certain telemetry circuits are provided within the transponder to enable conditions concerning the transponder to be telemetered back to the ground station.
