Tracking data processing. After acquisition, digital tracking data from the RDT link and syncro data from the synchro generation equipment at the TT&C and 200 MHz Autotracker antennas shall be continuously accepted and processed to provide status and history data. In addition, the TT&C antenna will provide continuous updating data to the slave bus.

Tracking status and digital data from any two of six possible remote tracking data link input signals shall be inputted under control of the computer program. Tracking receiver signal strength data shall be multiplexed with other analog data, digitized, and then provided to the computer program.

Telemetry Data Processing. Telemetry data processing shall be provided as follows:

    IRIG FM/FM data (up to 64 analog signals, plus parallel data from up to seven sources) processed through the TDPII.
  1. 24 bit word transfers from each of two remote PCM decommutators to the computer program with the capability of providing data and instructions to the same decommutators from the computer program.
Command Data Processing. The data processing configuration shall be capable of supporting command functions as follows:
  1. Providing simultaneously buffered digital command and echo check interfaces with the computer program.
