Wyle Awarded Boeing Contract for ATLAS III Ground Station to Support Army's Advanced CH-47F Chinook.EL SEGUNDO, Calif., April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing has awarded a Wyle unit the contract to build the Advanced Telemetry Linked Acquisition System III (ATLAS III) ground data system to support Boeing Rotorcraft ro·tor·craft
An aircraft, especially a helicopter, that is kept partially or completely airborne by airfoils rotating around a vertical axis. Systems' flight test programs including the Army's CH-47 Chinook Chinook, indigenous people of North America

The winning Wyle platform utilizes the latest generation of highly integrated digital signal processing See DSP.
Digital Signal Processing - (DSP) Computer manipulation of analog signals (commonly sound or image) which have been converted to digital form (sampled). , including a state-of-the-art telemetry processing engine, advanced XML-indexed binary data mining, and multiview real-time video and data displays.
The system also provides high speed real-time and post-test data product creation for legacy and current generation third party analysis software. It is based on the new government IRIG-106 2007, Chapter 10, Digital Recording Standard provides rich interoperability with next generation DoD recording assets.
The new ground station to be built by Wyle's Telemetry and Data Systems unit replaces the ground station installed by the same organization in 1997. The system combines the functionality of a real-time ground station and high speed data recorder in one four rack-unit chassis replacing the older approach, which occupied 10 rack units.
"Having been chosen to deliver Boeing's previous telemetry ground station, it was rewarding to see Boeing continue to place its confidence in the Wyle Telemetry and Data Systems team, many of whom helped deliver the initial system a decade earlier," said Dan Dawson, vice president of Wyle's Telemetry and Data Systems unit.
In step with Wyle's commitment of providing world-class commercial-off-the-shelf technology, the new ATLAS III system is based on a 4-gigabit open architecture providing more than an order of magnitude A change in quantity or volume as measured by the decimal point. For example, from tens to hundreds is one order of magnitude. Tens to thousands is two orders of magnitude; tens to millions is three orders of magnitude, etc. increased performance.
Wyle's Telemetry and Data Systems unit produces telemetry processing, telemetry receiving, data recording, and data mining solutions for government and industry. The range of applications for its products includes flight test, laboratory test, operational test, simulation, satellite command and control, and launch vehicle command and control.
