IRIG 106 Telemetry Attributes Transfer Standard (TMATS) Handbook

This programming handbook presents the results of work performed by members of the Telemetry Group (TG) under Task TG-83 of the Range Commanders Council (RCC). This document provides information to assist programmers in developing software for use with RCC Document 106, Telemetry Standard, historically referred to as Inter-range Instrumentation Group (IRIG 106). Therefore this document contains frequent references to the IRIG 106 document, primarily Chapter 10, Digital Recording Standard; it also covers aspects of Chapter 6 and Chapter 9.
