Abstract : A telemetry data selection method is used with a preprocessor which receives data arranged in a pre-determined format corresponding to predetermined parameters of subjects to be tested and which successively outputs data words each accompanied by a tag word. The data words have values for predetermined sets of the parameters, and the preprocessor generates the tag words with predetermined tags identifying the sets. The data and tag words are provided to a plurality of word selector and processor devices each associated with several digital-to-analog converters (DAC's). Each DAC is arbitrarily assignable to any one of the parameter sets, and data for each DAC may be arbitrarily unpacked and scaled. The DAC assignments, unpacking, and scaling may be conveniently changed during a test in which data is being telemetered.
