Range instrumentation systems include radar, optics, GPS (Global Positioning System), interferometer, and telemetry. These systems provide the range´s data collection capability. Special instrumentation support is also available.

Extensive instrumentation systems are available and are capable of measuring the following: acceleration, velocity, displacement, force, strain, pressure, temperature, and time sequence. A mobile instrumentation van is available to support tests performed at alternate locations.

Analog & Digital:
Field measurements of acoustic signature, events, pressures, sound pressure, strain, temperature, and vibration.

Analog-to-digital (A/D) and digital-to-analog (D/A) data conversion.
Digital data acquisition, recording and processing from computerized systems.

Support for atmospheric transmission, radiometry, photometry, thermal measurements, thermal signatures, lasers, laser characterizations, and image processing/analysis.

FM/FM, FM/PCM, PCM, RS-232, and MIL-STD-1553 data acquisition, recording, and processing.
Microwave transmission of data.

Video data acquisition, transmission, distribution, remote control, manprint, special effects, editing, digital still video, display and recording.
