Inter-Range Instrumentation Group (IRIG) 106-17 is the latest release of the telemetry standard that defines many technologies that directly apply to increasing the link availability of aeronautical mobile telemetry (AMT) links. The Telemetry Group (TG) within the Range Commanders Council (RCC) has steadily worked with industry and government entities to develop standards that can be applied to the modern day serial streaming telemetry link that mitigate certain anomalies that exist in every airborne link in use today. Each of these technologies, or “tools” within the standard, are briefly addressed with real-world examples presented that directly show the benefit to the serial streaming telemetry link. The purpose of this paper is to not only increase awareness to the telemetry standard IRIG 106 but also provide some insight on when to apply these tools to increase link availability of a given telemetry link.
