Faster than a speeding bullet? Ground-based telemetry systems you can trust.

Acal BFi are the leading UK provider of specialist ground-based tracking and telemetry systems.

Working with world leading suppliers, we have developed the expertise necessary to develop complex, ground-based telemetry and tracking systems capable of meeting the most demanding applications.

Our complete turnkey systems are unique in the industry. Our airborne telemetry and flight-test products gather and process critical information aboard spacecraft, aircraft, missiles, guided weapons, targets, and UAVs. Constructed to function under the severe conditions of space and military applications, our equipment also records the data, transmits it to receiving stations and then processes and displays it for technicians on the ground.

Used mainly in defence and aerospace applications our highly durable, precision products are available in the following categories.

  • RF products - including airborne telemetry transmitters, radar augmentation transponders and RF power amplifiers.
  • Advanced data acquisition products - including six data acquisition system (DAS) product families, so our customers can select the most cost-effective solutions for specific requirements. Additional products are available that complement the DAS and airborne product line, including encryption packages, cockpit display and control units, airborne recorders, and a variety of other products for special applications.
  • Ground products - including telemetry and space data receivers, de-modulators, bit-synchronizers, decommutators, and a full array of PC and VME plug-in modules to support virtually any ground telemetry requirement. Turnkey systems are available to provide total reception, computational processing, and display capabilities. We also provide setup and application-specific software packages.

Custom engineering solutions

In addition to these products, we are able to provide custom solutions for specific testing requirements. We offer a full range of engineering design, software engineering, program management and manufacturing services.
