L-3 TELEMETRY & RF PRODUCTS
To Our Valued Customers — In our continuing effort to improve competitiveness and optimize our execution,
L-3 recently announced the consolidation of Telemetry-East with Telemetry-West.
The combination of these two businesses will become L-3 Telemetry & RF Products (L-3 T&RF), maintaining facilities
in Bristol, Pennsylvania, and San Diego, California.
Our strategy is to improve our competitiveness while continuing to provide cost-effective solutions to our customers.
As part of this change, please note the following:
1. Cage Codes will remain unchanged and separate for the Bristol, PA and San Diego, CA locations.
2. We anticipate a smooth transition with no impact to customers.
3. This is a doing business as (DBA) change, and no Legal Entity change will take place.
Thank you for your support and commitment as we transition over the coming months through this growth process.

PCM400
MICRO-MINIATURE PROGRAMMABLE
DATA ACQUISITION
SYSTEM
SAN DIEGO, CA – Our PCM400 is a fifth-generation micro-miniature
programmable data acquisition system (DAS) suited for ultra-small weapons
and UAS tactical and flight test applications.
In any test environment, reliability, size, ease of use and cost are major
factors in selecting data acquisition equipment. The PCM400 DAS was
architected to address the dynamic needs of modern test systems in an
ultra-miniature form factor consisting of interface and power supply
modules, while still supporting legacy interfaces to ease the transition as
test environments are modernized.
PCM400
DATA ACQUISITION SYSTEM
The PCM400’s flight heritage is based on the highly successful L-3 T&RF
DAS series PCM 330 & 600 models which have supported a variety of smart weapons, UAS and launch
vehicle programs.
Driven by demands for increased functionality, performance and channel density, the PCM400 DAS encoder
sets new standards for size, weight, high data rates, high fidelity and tight tolerances and an backed by an
unmatched history of successful in-flight performance.
DTSR — DIGITAL TOUCH SCREEN RECEIVER
SINGLE- OR DUAL-CHANNEL 3U RACK-MOUNT TELEMETRY RECEIVER
BRISTOL, PA – Our new Digital Touch Screen Receiver (DTSR) is a 3U rack-mount single- or dual-channel
telemetry receiver that operates in P, L, S, C-IF & C-RF Bands and
features a 7-inch dual-touch screen color display.
The receiver boasts an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) for easy
setup of functions. Ample mission storage for quick recall and fast
set-up are also available. The receiver has bit-synchronizer and frame
synchronizer capability. Its spacious rear panel allows for direct BNC
input and output connections. Features include:
› Demodulates FM, SOQPSK, PM, BPSK, QPSK & OQPSK
› Data rates up to 30 Mbps in FM, SOQPSK
DTSR
DIGITAL TOUCH SCREEN
TELEMETRY RECEIVER
› Built-in instrumentation, including eye diagram
› IF spectrum and constellation
Bit sync and frame sync options are available via software license keys, which eliminates the need to return
the equipment to the factory.
DMTS-4007
SINGLE- OR DUAL-CHANNEL MULTI-BAND INTEGRATED TELEMETRY RECEIVER
BRISTOL, PA – Our new DMTS-4007 is designed as a single- or dual-channel
multi-band integrated telemetry receiver with tracking capabilities and integrated
bit and frame synchronizers on a single PCI card.
Capable of accepting RF input signals with a high dynamic range (from 0 dBm
down to noise floor), the DMTS-4007 will receive the RF signal, condition it,
perform digital demodulation, synchronize the signal and process most telemetry
formats.
The DMTS-4007 is user-friendly and the graphical user interface (GUI) allows
easy installation, calibration, configuration and monitoring of the product.
