Are Higher Data Rates Stressing Your Old Coax Infrastructure?

August 29, 2019

The traditional coax infrastructure for moving PCM data has outlived its usefulness as data rates approach and exceed 10 Mbps. At these higher data rates, coax cable impedance mismatches, patch panels, coax switches, improper terminations and damaged cable dielectrics degrade the signal to the point where data cannot reliably be recovered at the destination. This results in increased bit error rates, frame sync loss and ultimately loss of critical data. In those cases where clock Read More >

Combat the Effects of Multipath Distortion and Fading on a Telemetry Signal

April 12, 2019

Telemetry receivers may have trouble obtaining an unperturbed high-fidelity signal due to multipath interference distortion. Multipath distortion occurs when a signal, emanating from a source, encounters conditions that cause delayed versions of the original signal to be propagated along with the primary signal to the destination. Interactions between the primary and delayed signals result in a distorted signal that must be processed by the receiver. GDP Space Systems' newest Multi-band Range Telemetry Receivers are engineered with the latest technology Read More >

IRIG CH7 Serial-to-Ethernet Function Now Available

January 23, 2019

GDP Space Systems has integrated the IRIG Chapter 7 (CH7) Serial-to-Ethernet function, supporting the IRIG Chapter 11 (CH11) protocol, as a new mode in the Model 2350 Telemetry Gateway.
