Abstract:
Third-order phase-locked receivers have not yet found wide application in deep-space communications systems because the second-order systems now used have performed adequately on past spacecraft missions. However, a survey of the doppler profiles for future missions shows that an unaided second-order loop may be unable to perform within reasonable error bounds. This article discusses the characteristics of a simple third-order extension to present second-order systems that not only extends doppler -tracking capability, but widens the pull-in range and decreases pull-in time as well.
