Abstract

A synchronous CDMA telemetry system (10) is provided for use in a wellbore. In one described embodiment, each data bit of digital outputs (24,26) of multiple downhole data sources is multiplied by an orthogonal code (28,30) unique to each data source. The resulting encoded outputs are modulated on a carrier frequency (32,34) and summed (38) on a transmission channel (36). The resulting signal is demodulated (44,46) at a remote location and separately multiplied by each of the codes (48,50) to separate out the contributions to the signal from each data source. The individual demodulated and decoded outputs are then integrated (52,54) over the length of each data bit.
