Radiometric Tracking Techniques for Deep-Space Navigation. Edition No. 1

  • ID: 2181162
  • Book
  • February 2003
  • 104 Pages
  • John Wiley and Sons Ltd
Radiometric Tracking Techniques for Deep-Space Navigation focuses on a broad array of technologies and concepts developed over the last four decades to support radio navigation on interplanetary spacecraft. In addition to an overview of Earth-based radio navigation techniques, the book includes a simplified conceptual presentation of each radiometric measurement type, its information content, and the expected measeurement accuracy. The methods described for both aquiring and calibrating radiometric measurements also provide a robust system to support guidance and navigation for future robotic space exploration.
