Keywords: Augmented stellite launch vehicle, Processing methodology, Telemetry data, Post flight analysis


In any launch vehicle mission, post -flight analysis (pFA ) of vehicle telemetry data turns outto be all important, because it helps in evaluating detailed in-flight perfonnance of the varioussub systems of the vehicle. An integrated processing methodology was adopted and a generalised software was developed for processing the telemetry data of augmented satellite launch vehicle (ASLV).
