Data Communications

Compact Gateway

IRIG-106 is an IRIG standard widely used in the Flight Test community for multiplexing Synchronous & Asynchronous data into a single PCM stream.

The IRIG-106 gateway can merge several PCM outputs, Video channels and Ethernet data streams into a single PCM telemetry channel which can be transmitted to the ground using a regular Transmitter, whatever the Frequency Band (typically L, S or C) and/or Modulation type (FM, SOQPSK,) including Coding or not.

Stand-alone or integrated switches

Dedicated equipment enable a strong capacity of switching data flows in your architecture, Gb-switch or highly ruggedized equipment are available.

The NEX and MHUB modules also offer the switching capacities integrated in XMA or MDR for a lighter solution.

Stand-Alone or Embedded Transmitters

The small size, light weight and robustness of transmitters make them ideal for integration in narrow space with harsh environment.

Available as l-band, s-band and c-band, they offer several programmable

Output power (typically up to 10w) | modulation (pcm/fm, soqpsk-tg, multi-h cpm, etc.) | coding (ldpc).

Flight Termination Receivers

The highly reliable FTR140 offers its compact package and fully digital operation for use on any type of missiles, UAVs , targets or RPV.

It has been qualified on both MIL STD-461E and MIL STD-810F.

Tracking & Reception

Full Range of Telemetry Antennas

Aircraft, helicopters, UAVs, missiles, space launchers are covered by our wide range of antennas. Being future-proof, they have the capability to cover all bands  for telemetry (L, S, C).

COMTRACK is the ideal antenna for fast deployable  and transportable solutions thanks to its very light weight, compactness and easy installation.

SPARTE family, (SPARTE 300, SPARTE 500, SPARTE 700), for mission-critical applications.


It provides a full coverage of each and every need whatever the distance to be covered and the constraints of the flight trials.

The SPARTE family can also be used for shipborne and mobile applications without any compromise on performance.

L/S/C Tri-Band Feed

WE are representing Safran Data Systems which offers the best match of technology, performance and price with a patented highly miniaturized common L/S/C radiating front end fitted with a modular set of active RF modules. Therefore, the feed is able to receive signals and track simultaneously in each band with a small and light-weight enough enclosure so that it may be mounted on dishes as small as 6 feet (1.8m).

Frequency Bandwidth

L-Band 1429 – 1545MHz

S Band 2200 – 2400MHz

C Band 4800 – 5250MHz

Up to 3 bands (L/S/C) simultaneous reception and tracking in a single feed enclosure

Tracking feed from 50Hz up to 1000Hz scanning frequency

Independent active RF module & filtering for each band allowing S, C, L/S, S/C, L/S/C configurations

Cortex RTR & Compact RX-1 Receivers

Safran Data Systems offers two products, the Cortex RTR and the RX-1 receiver, with the same level of performance (quality of reception, demodulation and decoding) and integrating all functions  from combining features, demodulations to data streams over Ethernet.

It can be used as reference for critical applications (missile or launcher telemetry), the RTR is also used widely by space agencies around the world.

An advantage of the technology of the CORTEX RTR, the RX-1 is a perfect fit for mobile telemetry applications and when high number of channels of reception is required.

Data outputs under different formats.

Best Source Selector (BSS)

It enables real-time automatic selection of the best signal received simultaneously from different antennas targeting the same airframe.

It allows seamless hand-over from different antennas (either extending the reception range  or securing data reception while one antenna does not provide relevant data):

Up to 8 inputs (Analog signal or PCM data),

Programmable selection criteria: Eb/No, DQE/DQM, frame synchronizer status, majority vote,

Data output: PCM (data and clock), PCM stream in Chapter 10 packets on Ethernet.

Telemetry & Signal Recorders
