Power Converter Module
The power converter module provides power conditioning as necessary to
meet MIL-STD 704A and MIL-STD-1275E power quality standards as well as
EN55022, CISPR22, Class B EMI Compliant. This module contains an isolated
DC-DC converter, two buck-boost regulators, a non-isolated DC-DC converter
for MIS power, a LDO for low noise MIS power, EMI filters, inrush protection,
reverse input protection, input diode isolation, short circuit protection, and
power distribution that will convert the externally-supplied power to clean,
filtered, regulated voltage levels necessary to power the entire MIS stack. It
is also capable of supplying power to external devices such as transmitters,
transponders, remote MIS stacks, etc.

Provides clean, low-noise power for all MIS modules (up to 20W).
High efficiency regulators (up to 98% efficiency).
There is a total of 4 different diode ORed input powers, 2 battery and 2 external.
All 4 inputs have reverse voltage protection, surge voltage protection, and soft starts.
Only one of the external power inputs has spike protection.
Can boost any of the 4 input voltages up to 40V with a maximum output of 10W from
each buck-boost.
There is a total of 9 different outputs. Each one is rated for at least 2A that can
provide positive and/or negative voltages for MIS modules or external devices.
One of the 9 power outputs can be controlled on or off at will by other modules in
the MIS stack and can output any of the input/output voltages.
The batteries can be turned on by applying voltage to a single pin. This feature can
be configured to either be latched on by a momentary voltage or can be required to
have a continuous voltage.
The batteries can be turned on or off from other modules in the stack even when the
batteries are isolated from MIS power.
All power inputs can be isolated from the MIS module power and from each other or
have various grounding schemes depending on their usage.
A single discrete input that can be configured to accept an external input or that can
be used to monitor battery voltage to provides status when the battery is on.

Modular Instrumentation System (MIS)
Analog Output Module
The MIS analog output module offers 16 outputs that can be factory configured to
be single-ended or differential. Each channel is triggered or controlled individually
to output set waveforms or receive waveforms remotely. The data is latched to
each individual output synchronously for all 16 channels. The module is also
designed to be able to either float the outputs when desired or to pullup each
respective output to a known power rail. This feature allows the board to also
be used in a digital / discrete output fashion. This capability also keeps the DAC
outputs from having an unintended effect on external circuitry when not in use.
The analog output module gives the MIS user the ability to output complex analog
signals or to add an analog signal to an existing externally applied signal. This
feature is useful for using the instrumentation system to augment flight testing or
to aid in experiments.

Modular Instrumentation System (MIS)
Rotor Data Acquisition Systems (RDAS)
For over 20 years, Dynetics has been involved in the design, fabrication, and support
of custom telemetry instrumentation systems. These systems have operated under
harsh conditions varying from high frequency vibration to exposure to explosive
atmosphere, rapid altitude changes, pressure changes, high spin rates, and low
and high temperatures. Leveraging Dynetics’ proven MIS hardware, Dynetics has
developed a rotor data acquisition system (RDAS).
The RDAS provides an instrumentation unit to collect data and telemeter that data to
a nearby fuselage receiver, avoiding costly onboard slip rings. The compact design of
the system often allows for integration within the spinner or between rotor blades for
rotor applications. An optional Dynetics-provided receiver and bit synchronizer in the
fuselage can provide clock and data inputs for use by the decom and data recorders.
Multiple antenna configuration options are available.
The RDAS architecture is designed to be configurable to meet different data collection
requirements and minimize non-recurring engineering (NRE) costs.

fuselage (IRIG 106 S-band, with

Open Architecture for Telemetry and Instrumentation
Systems (OATIS)
Specifications
The open architecture for telemetry and
instrumentation systems (OATIS) was developed
by Dynetics for the System Simulation and
Development Directorate (SSDD). OATIS is modular
and designed to make, log, and transmit inertial and
various other measurement to a ground station. It
includes two subsystems:
Airborne payload
Ground station
▪ Airborne control unit (ACU)
▪ Ground station server
▪ RF modem and blade antenna
C-MIGITS III GPS/INS and antenna
(optional)
▪ Control panel
▪ Smart sensor nodes (SSNs)
▪ Moving map display
▪ Real-time strip-charts
▪ Configuration editor
OATIS has been installed in the following unmanned aircraft systems (UAS):
▪ Hunter: precision engagement collaboration process (PECP) completed for
integration on Hunter. Flown on Hunter during flight test demonstrations in
January 2005.
▪ Shadow: initial integration and partial mission capable (PMC) flights performed
December 2006 at Redstone Arsenal (RSA). Range check flights (100 km)
performed at RSA in January 2007.
▪ Other: installed on a total of five vendor prototypes to collect independent
measurements for aerial vehicle (AV) performance analysis.
Data acquisition
The SSNs are a family of distributed
data acquisition products responsible
for signal measurement. These devices
consist of modular components for
signal conditioning, measurement, and
communication.
A network of SSNs is connected to the
ACU via a network cable in a daisy chain
topology. The nodes are placed in the
UAS in close proximity to the signals to be
measured.
The distributed data acquisition architecture of OATIS simplifies installation and
maintenance of test equipment by significantly reducing the amount of cable that
must be routed through the airframe.
y 34
OATIS provides the
following benefits
to the UAS flight test
environment:
▪ An independent
measurement
system to assist in
evaluating aircraft
performance and
system functionality
▪ A flexible data acquisition
subsystem (DAS) that allows
efficient integration of new
sensors as new test
measurement requirements
are identified
▪ Situational awareness for
the test conductor
▪ Real-time visualization of
measurement data during
flight
