The physical methods of modulating the carrier, which may be either spread spectrum (e.g., TDRSS) or subcarrier (e.g., conventional ground station) techniques, are described in Reference [3]. The Carrier Modulation Modes are shown in Table 4-1. Table 4-1: Carrier Modulation Modes Mode CMM-1 Unmodulated CARRIER only CMM-2 CARRIER modulated with ACQUISITION SEQUENCE CMM-3 CARRIER modulated with TC data (e.g., CLTU) CMM-4 4.3.2 State CARRIER modulated with IDLE SEQUENCE TELECOMMAND SESSION During a Telecommand Session, a series of CLTUs is transmitted to a remote spacecraft. The session begins with the initial application of the RF carrier (CMM-1) and ends with the removal of the carrier. The path is further controlled (activated or deactivated) by the selection of appropria...
