Helicity-rotation-gravity coupling for gravitational waves
The consequences of spin-rotation-gravity coupling are worked out for linear gravitational waves. The coupling of helicity of the wave with the rotation of a gravitational-wave antenna is
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.
CHARGED PARTICLES AND THE ELECTRO-MAGNETIC FIELD IN NONINERTIAL FRAMES OF MINKOWSKI SPACE–TIME II: "APPLICATIONS: ROTATING FRAMES, SAGNAC EFFECT, FARADAY ROTATION, WRAP-UP EFFECT"
We apply the theory of noninertial frames in Minkowski space–time, developed in the previous paper, to various relevant physical systems. We give the 3 + 1 description without coordinate
Nonlocal Dirac equation for accelerated observers
The nonlocal theory of accelerated systems is extended to the propagation of Dirac particles. The implications of nonlocality for the phenomenon of spin-rotation coupling are discussed. The
Analysis of the Doppler shift due to pendulation and static spinning for projectile antennas
TLDR
This work is a preliminary study in order to build a new channel model where the characteristic movement of the antenna affects the Doppler shift and these effects will be considered in its definition.
Options for a non-dedicated test of the Pioneer anomaly
The Doppler-tracking data of the Pioneer 10 and 11 spacecraft show an unmodelled constant acceleration in the direction of the inner Solar System. Serious efforts have been undertaken to find a
The Pioneer anomaly: seeking an explanation in newly recovered data
The Pioneer 10 and 11 spacecraft yielded very accurate navigation in deep space that was, however, limited by a small, anomalous frequency drift of their carrier signals received by the
Toward Nonlocal Electrodynamics of Accelerated Systems
We revisit acceleration-induced nonlocal electrodynamics and the phenomenon of photon spin-rotation coupling. The kernel of the theory for the electromagnetic field tensor involves parity violation

A Mission to test the Pioneer anomaly
Analysis of the radio tracking data from the Pioneer 10/11 spacecraft has consistently indicated the presence of an anomalous small Doppler frequency drift. The drift can be interpreted as being due
Study of the anomalous acceleration of Pioneer 10 and 11
Our previous analyses of radio Doppler and ranging data from distant spacecraft in the solar system indicated that an apparent anomalous acceleration is acting on Pioneer 10 and 11, with a magnitude

TLDR
The conceptual basis, founded on special and general relativity, for navigation using GPS, and experimental tests of relativity obtained with a GPS receiver aboard the TOPEX/POSEIDON satellite will be discussed.
Indication, from Pioneer 10 / 11, Galileo, and Ulysses data, of an apparent anomalous, weak, long range acceleration
Radio metric data from the Pioneer 10/11, Galileo, and Ulysses spacecraft indicate an apparent anomalous, constant, acceleration acting on the spacecraft with a magnitude
