Abstract:
Digital processing techniques and related algorithms for receiving and processing space vehicle downlink signals are discussed. The combination of low minimum signal to noise density (C/No), large signal dynamic range, unknown time of arrival, and high space vehicle dynamics that is characteristic of some of these downlink signals results in a difficult acquisition problem. A method for rapid acquisition is described which employs a Fast Fourier Transform (FFT). Also discussed are digital techniques for precise measurement of space vehicle range and range rate using a digitally synthesized number controlled oscillator (NCO).
