Ranging Processor (Model 700)

The Model 700 Ranging Processors an integrated state-of-the-art, high performance, multiple format unit. Both forward link range code generation and return link range processing functions are accommodated. The MD700 is unique in eight major ways: 1) It processes major ranging formats: SGLS, CCSDS, USB, ESA and Commercial. 2) It is programmable to select SGLS and CCSDS code rates and USB / ESA Major Tone frequencies. 3) It is programmable for SGLS, USB and ESA code lengths. 4) Doppler and Range estimates are included in the process. 5) Adjustable acquisition and tracking bandwidths enhance operation in low signal-to-noise applications. 6) A tunable, high dynamic range, high selectivity front end is incorporated to minimize adjacent signal interference and ranging signal distortion. 7) An all-digital design improves accuracy, stability and resolution. 8) Reconfigurable logic allows for modifications to accommodate unique customer needs.
