AbstractThe Pioneer 10 and 11 spacecraft yielded the mostprecise navigation in deep space to date. These spacecrafthad exceptional acceleration sensitivity. However, analysisof their radio-metric tracking data has consistently indi-cated that at heliocentric distances of ∼20–70 astronomi-cal units, the orbit determinations indicated the presenceof asmall, anomalous,Dopplerfrequency drift. The drift isa blue-shift, uniformly changing with a rate of ∼ (5.99 ±0.01) × 10 −9 Hz/s, which can be… 
The Pioneer Anomaly
TLDR
A significant amount of information is provided on the design, operations and behavior of the two Pioneers during their entire missions, including descriptions of various data formats and techniques used for their navigation and radio-science data analysis.
A STUDY OF THE PIONEER ANOMALY: NEW DATA AND OBJECTIVES FOR NEW INVESTIGATION
The Pioneer 10/11 spacecraft yielded the most precise navigation in deep space to date. However, their radiometric tracking data has consistently indicated the presence of a small, anomalous, Doppler
Pioneer Anomaly: What Can We Learn from LISA?
The Doppler tracking data from two deep-space spacecraft, Pioneer 10 and 11, show an anomalous blueshift, which has been dubbed the “Pioneer anomaly”. The effect is most commonly interpreted as a
Options for a Nondedicated Mission to Test the Pioneer Anomaly
The Doppler-tracking data of the Pioneer 10 and 11 spacecraft show an unmodeled constant acceleration in the direction of the inner solar system. Serious efforts have been undertaken to find a
Pioneer anomaly and the Kuiper Belt mass distribution
Pioneer 10 and 11 were the first probes sent to study the outer planets of the Solar System, and Pioneer 10 was the first spacecraft to leave the Solar System. Besides their already epic journeys,
The Quest to Understand the Pioneer Anomaly
The Pioneer 10/11 missions, launched in 1972 and 1973, and their navigation are reviewed. Beginning in about 1980 an unmodeled force of {approx} 8 x 10{sup -8} cm/s{sup 2} appeared in the tracking
Testing Gravity in the Outer Solar System: Results from Trans-Neptunian Objects
The inverse square law of gravity is poorly probed by experimental tests at distances of ~10 AU. Recent analysis of the trajectory of the Pioneer 10 and 11 spacecraft have shown an unmodeled
Can the Pioneer Anomaly be of Gravitational Origin? A Phenomenological Answer
In order to satisfy the equivalence principle, any non-conventional mechanism proposed to gravitationally explain the Pioneer anomaly, in the form in which it is presently known from the so-far
Search for a solution of the Pioneer anomaly
In 1972 and 1973 the Pioneer 10 and 11 missions were launched. They were the first to explore the outer solar system and achieved stunning breakthroughs in deep-space exploration. But beginning in
