Abstract:
Deep space probes necessitate the use of coherent ranging transponders. The requirements for this class of transponder can be divided into telemetry, command and ranging requirements. Usually the telemetry requirements are rather straightforward and concern more with hardware design aspects. On the other hand, command requirements generally requires iterative computations to achieve an optimum system design. Ranging requirements are based either on a simple turn-around ranging channel, or on the complex regenerative channel. The design of this transponder is based on the former type of ranging channel. This paper shows the system design for such a transponder and a comparison with measured performance characteristics. Additionally, spurious signal analysis for the ranging operation is dealt with briefly.
