Acroamatics Telemetry Software Suite (ATSS)
Provided with every new Acroamatics TDP System and Card  Level TM processing product




  Irig Chapter 4 / 5 / 8 / 9 / 10 NASA CCSDS CVSD LabViewsTM TMATS 

Acroamatics bundles our excellent suite of telemetry GUI setup and mission database management (TDPSet), real-time system operations and status, and a full toolkit of data product delivery, display, recording, simulation software with each TDP system and card level product we deliver.  With the introduction of our latest ATSS interactive TDP system set-up and operations support software package Acroamatics has added an entire new dimension and ease of operation to both existing (backward compatible with all legacy TDP products!)  and new Acroamatics Telemetry Processing System and card level TM data processing product users.


Newly improved TDPSet software is designed to allow both neophyte and experienced users the opportunity to quickly and efficiently create system set-ups, networked data communications, multi-format raw and processed data recording, real-time quick-look data displays, Excel and MS Access database edits/imports/exports, TMATS system set-up import and edits and much more.


Extensive interactive MS style "help" and pop-up wizard support aids are provided throughout the easily navigated TDPSet GUI. Examples and search aids are offered to further guide even accomplished telemetry system users through unfamiliar format and processing tool set-up and data formatting menu pages.


Experienced users may also directly modify system set-up "scripts" directly with provided editing tools outside of the TDPSet II program, or automatically convert set-ups within TDPSet II (including TMATS import files) to Excel file format for rapid mission set-up editing, import, and loading when small "tweaks" are required to accommodate a modified test event or new phase of test article qualification.


An important advanced feature of the entire Acroamatics Telemetry Software Suite (ATSS) software suite provided with each of our  Telemetry Data Processing systems is that all components of the software can run on any PC located on the network. This allows system managers the choice of enabling both local and remote operations personnel the potential to individually manage and adjust decom set-ups, bit sync rates, displays, alarms, recording and data I/O processes and other key telemetry system functional elements and processes  to be changed - without the risk of corrupting adjacent system processing operations , thus enabling most efficient use of existing telemetry front-end processing assets.


Acroamatics own Data Server software interface provides a well-proven and simple to use facility for interfacing any TDP system to networked OR locally run IADS Data Server and client applications.  IADS server and client applications may be run concurrently on your TDP chassis, as Acroamatics Windows OS independent embedded card level real-time processing methods allow our standard Model 2900P system CPU sufficient bandwidth to run many IADS display applications in conjunction with multi-stream Acroamatics TM processing operations, dependent on scale and breath of mission IADS processing requirements. Thus providing a compact, low cost, single enclosure multi-stream "portable" Acro TDP/ processing and analysis solution with the telemetry processing and data analysis horsepower of a full function multi-stream fixed base TM ground station. Add any of the number of supported PCI receivers Acro supports or even a transmitter coupled to our powerful programmable PCM simulators to tailor the configuration to fit your exact needs.



Graphic Oriented TDPSet is included within ATSS software delivered within every Acroamatics Telemetry Data Processing (TDP) Product


Irig Chapter 4 / 5 / 8 / 9 / 10  NASA CCSDS



TDPSET telemetry data processor mission set-up software allows users to create, store, and edit set-ups for their TDP systems directly from a database that you construct using TDPSET graphical data entry menus. By using this software users can define all details of PCM frame and decom format,  EU parameter, and derived data processing database information for set-up and operation with any Acroamatics TDP family of system and card level telemetry products (Decoms, Programmable Data Stream Processor, Bit Syncs, Simulators, Time Code Reader, DAC ,etc).


TDPSET GUI set-up software automatically recognizes system hardware configurations and supplies the tools you need to define parameter scaling and data distribution functions described in your encoder database, as well as to set up stripchart A to D converter outputs, multiple stripchart, tabular, and bargraph annunciator display pages, alarms and data limit notification events, record of both raw and processed data formats, CVSD analog voice output, client networked data communications, and much more. Once created, the Acroamatics TDP System Setup file menu lets you open and load a new mission system processing database program to TDP system hardware embedded processors and interfaces. The TDP System Setup menu has checkboxes that let you define what components from those installed you desire to program and the software system is configured according to what you check. TDPSET software also now includes our own IRIG Chapter 9 TMATS translator/set-up capability.



User Manual for TDPSet Telemetry System Setup Software


PCM Decommutator Interface

The PCM Decommutator Menu allows you to modify critical settings for the frame synchronizer, import and modify imported TMATS definitions. You can change the sync pattern and mask, and modify the sync strategy, or change any decommutation format program structure variable.


Real Time Data Display


TDPSetII support creation and data assignment of the host of real-time displays supported within Acroamatics ATSS telemetry system software suite. Mapping of objects to display is easy and intuitive. Data displays created within TDPSetII can then be deployed automatically when your TDP system is loaded, or selected as desired during telemetry system operations. Parameters and derived data from any  of the PCM data streams presented to the system can be shown simultaneously as cross plots, bar charts, tabular, instrument, and numeric displays. Cross plots include vector and point plots.


ATSS uses TDPSetII display setup files to control system data displays. New mission data displays can be produced or existing displays modified through use of the provided ATSS Real Time Display setup utility. ATSS displays support the use of multiple scalable users display windows. Each "child" window will show one of the sixteen pages supported from a single ATSS mission display setup file. The ATSS Real Time Display Program saves all the information needed to restore and actuate displays the next time the a stored ATSS mission display file is recalled..


TDP Status

This application allows you to monitor up to four PCM decommutators (per display instance - eight total). The display shows the status (Idle, Search, Check or Lock) for the Mainframe and six subframe synchronizers of each decommutator. It also displays IRIG time if the system has a Time Code and overall system operating mode ( IDLE or in RUN).

Data Reconstruction



This application controls the reconstructor portion of the  Simulator/Reconstructor portion of the PCI 1605P Programmable Data Stream Processor card. It allows you to playback data from a file to the TDP’s data distribution system. The data distribution system can be programmed to provide the reconstructed data to various devices such as a PCM serializer, DACs to drive strip
charts, or a current value table for display on our PC.

Standalone and Integrated Bit Synchronizer Control Panels


Standalone and TDP system resident PCM Bit Synchronizer Menu utilities are provided for use either  locally or remotely, providing simultaneous support for all models of the Acroamatics Bit Synchronizers - PCI card level Bit Synchronizers within TDP systems or any of our multi-stream Bit Synchronizer chassis products. Software delivered with every Acroamatics bit sync and TDP product auto-detects Bit Synchronizer type and facilities and modifies the setup display to match the available features of the unit. The Bit Sync Menu allows you to set-up and adjust the bit synchronizers in your system or network, and to modify their setups. When used within a TDP system, bit sync set-ups which have been loaded as part of a system mission profile may be fine tuned prior to or during a mission. Prompts warn operators prior to loading of temporary changes to bit sync set-ups. Access to all the operating parameters of the bit sync are supported — bit rate, input code, loop width, tracking, etc. You can save and restore individual bit synchronizer setups, and in systems with multiple bit syncs you can save a "Mission Configuration" which defines the setup for all your bit syncs. Bit Sync Status applications allow monitoring of all bit synchronizers installed within a system. Default status displays include status (Idle, Search or Lock), signal amplitude and offset, and loop stress (a reflection of frequency deviation), with simple menu page access to specialized displays supporting bit error rate (LINK), PCM frame sync pattern, and encoder/decoder parameters.

Data Recording and Network Data Communications Client

The data recording client operates with a Record Server that runs on the TDP (or the TDP PC in a PCI system). It communicates with the Server through a link that allows you to operate the data recording not only from the TDP but from any PC on the network that is made aware of the TDP.

Custom Programs

Acroamatics has much experience in the integration of hardware of other manufacturers for which we have written setup, control, and data interface  software applications. In addition Acroamatics telemetry hardware components support a variety of third party processing  and acquisition products, and are easily integrated into systems  requiring easily integrated PCM bit sync, decode, and decom interfaces.

Simulator and Sim Encoded PCM Playback Menu


The Simulator Menu allows you to modify the settings for the resources that drive the PCM output of the PCM Format Simulator. You can change the bit rate of the simulation, the data values and word properties, as well as the wave form generated from the dynamic memories. Frame Structure and programmed simulator data content are selected within TDPSet, allowing set-up, storage, and management  of both standalone simulator and integrated TDP System Mission Loads which include simulation programs to drive the programmable simulators within each Model 1612P, 470M, or 1626P card included within a given system configuration.

Serial PCM (code selectable) playback of recorded file stream data is supported by the Sim Encoded PCM Playback function, allowing recording and playback of live mission data to drive global range simulations, assist in mission hardware troubleshooting, or support the exchange of raw data files between organizations.





TDP Start/Stop (TdpStart) is graphical user interface (GUI) that manages the starting and stopping of data acquisition in an Acroamatics PCI Telemetry Data Processor (TDP). One or more acquisition devices can be started synchronously on a PCM frame boundary, while others can be started and stopped on the fly. TdpStart supports hard disk recording and network multicasting for the Acroamatics 6011605 Programmable Data Stream Processor card, and one or more 6011602 PCM Decommutator cards.
