SEMCO has been a premier provider of telemetry receivers for 25+ years, with over 2300 receivers installed and operational worldwide. SEMCO’s telemetry receivers include rackmount 6U, 4U, 3U, 2U and 1U Dual and Quad Channel Receiver Combiner Systems, as well as single and multi-channel receiver configurations, including 8 channel receivers. Performance features include:
- Frequency coverage from 70 MHz to 5250 MHz
- The latest IRIG 106-20 demodulator formats
- Unprecedented data rate capabilities from as low as 2 kbps to 40 Mbps
- Embedded Bit Sync, Frame Sync, BERT, PN Generator and Built-in-Self-Test (embedded RF source, multi-mode modulator and diagnostic routines)
- Eye Pattern, Constellation, Spectrum and STC displays
- Unique and Intuitive Front Panel Touch Screen Displays and Controls
- Remote IA compliant (network) and local controls
Additional features include Next Generation Adaptive Equalization (AE), Data Quality Metrics Encapsulation (DQM/DQE), Space Time Coding (STC), Low Density Parity Check (LDPC), Viterbi, Turbo and Reed Solomon Forward Error Correction (FEC) and Telemetry over IP (TMoIP).
SEMCO’s telemetry receiver designs embrace (1) Windows-based Operating Systems, (2) embedded Linux ARM Processors with DMZ Buffer design for IA compliance, and (3) “Ethernet Only” configurations (no Operating System). All three of these operating protocols are designed to operate side-by-side and are virtually transparent to the user.
These performance features and the versatility that comes from offering multiple telemetry receiver platform configurations, coupled with proven receiver reliability, maintainability, ease-of-use and SEMCO’s world class customer support are reasons why many U.S. Flight Test Ranges and several International Flight Test Ranges have modernized and standardized on SEMCO telemetry receivers. Importantly, SEMCO telemetry receivers are used and compatible with all airborne transmitters used on both U.S. and International Flight Test Ranges. This includes the latest airborne digital transmitters configured with LDPC and STC.
Next Generation “Range of the Future” Receiver Design
Exciting new SEMCO “Range of the Future” next generation receiver designs embrace antenna pedestal-mounted 8-channel 1U RF signal conditioning down-converters, an RF Digitizer for RF data transport via Ethernet (RFoIP) and a software-defined 8-channel receiver that processes, demodulates and packetizes the data for telemetry data transport via Ethernet (TMoIP).
