Potential applications of the RMFTR for NASA will be advanced aeronautical system testing capabilities, that enable high data rate telemetry. Increasing the data capacity of telemetry systems will allow NASA flight test teams to increase the sensor payloads on test vehicles. An increased number of sensor will provide NASA the ability to test and monitor an increasing number of flight metrics, enhancing the quality and quantity of flight test data.
The telemetry community is under increasing pressure when it comes to spectrum availability for flight tests and missile system testing. The proposed RMFTR will provide the telemetry community with a flexible, programmable transmitter that can quickly adapt to the available spectrum, maximizing the spectrum usage and minimizing interference to neighboring systems. Therefore, it is anticipated that the telemetry community will be the first adopters of the proposed product, and the commercialization strategy is based upon this first-use application.
