Fast near-maximum likelihood phase estimation of X-ray pulsars

Abstract

This letter addresses the problem of X-ray pulsar radiation phase estimation, encountered in research works concerning autonomous deep space navigation systems. Autonomous navigation systems represent an intriguing solution to be employed when Earth-assisted navigation is not viable for long range missions. In such applications, X-ray pulsars, as well as… (More)
