The relative navigation problem between two spacecraft in deep space is formulated based on employing X-ray pulsar signals. The proposed approach is to lock the detectors on the same pulsar and time-tag the detected X-ray photons. Then using the epoch folding procedure the observed pulsar rate functions on each spacecraft are retrieved and the time delay is estimated through a nonlinear least-squares (NLS) fitting of the empirical rate function to the known pulsar rate function. The relative… CONTINUE READING
