Airborne Telemetry

AIRtec’s specialized personnel and technology platforms contribute to a wide range of maritime radar surveillance, airborne telemetry and range safety capabilities.

Our Airborne Telemetry platform provides reliable detection, tracking, relay and recording for a variety of missions and testing scenarios.

AIRtec operates a King Air A100 airborne telemetry aircraft employing a 360 degree, dual circularly polarized, belly-mounted auto tracking antenna. The aircraft supports relay and recording of four up-link data sources in the L and/or S bands, and four, real-time, C-band downlink re-transmissions. Three non-pilot crew members are available for in-flight data management and relay. Concurrent flight termination systems (FTS) can be flown with telemetry relay.

As a research, development, testing & evaluation (RDT&E) resource, AIRtec provides full project support with accurate mission planning and versatile communications.
