LAUNCHER TELEMETRY SYSTEM
In the frame of ASI contract for the provision of the LARES payload for the VEGA maiden flight, TEMIS has developed an innovative telemetry system for space transportation. The system has been conceived as a self standing and highly independent module to be embarked on launcher with negligible impacts on external interfaces. The main features of the system are:
- assisting the Launch Vehicle in the acquisition and monitoring of key parameters inside the launcher fairing;
- providing separation of the payloads (satellites) inside the launcher;
- monitoring, by means of video cameras, the separation of the satellites from the launcher vehicle and the separations of the different launch stages during ascent;
- being an independent system with its own battery and transmitter for downloading data to ground segment.
