Recipients can each use their own standard-compliant decommutation and analysis systems.
By lowering the switching costs, users can augment their capabilities or seek new solutions as their needs and the available technology evolve while still protecting their basic investment in software-based decommutation and analysis systems.
, each telemetry parameter can be time-tagged with information derived from GPS or IRIG sources.
In order to minimize hard real-time processing in the Unix workstations, the basic telemetry-processing roles of bit, frame, and subframe syncrhonization, and parameter extraction (decommutation
) were performed in a dedicated telemetry processor (Loral Instrumentation ADS-100 or System 500).
