Welcome to L-3 Telemetry-West's
Web-based Telemetry Tutorial. This basic course covers the entire telemetry
process — everything from taking measurements
to displaying and archiving results to analyzing data for mission-critical
applications. While this tutorial is structured to flow sequentially,
we encourage you to jump around to your areas of interest.
A Word on Telemetry Definitions
sure would have come in handy for the Wright brothers at Kitty Hawk,
North Carolina back in 1903. But it wasn’t pioneered until some

Even today, definitions used in airborne, ground, space, flight test,
or industrial applications may differ.
L-3 Telemetry-West’s heritage
is in aircraft ground systems, so the definitions used in this tutorial
will be ground oriented. Click on the Glossary for a comprehensive summary of telemetry definitions. You can also jump
