Project Title

Delta-DOR technical Characteristics and performance - Issue 2



Document Number



1.06 Delta-DOR Working Group

Document Type


Description of Document

Issue 2 of the Delta-DOR Green Book addresses the following points on top of the current material: - Different signal structures that can be used for Deep Space and/or Near Earth Astrometry mission applications. Such signal structures could be: a) the use of spread spetrum DOR signals, b) the use of high rate telemetry downlinks in place of DOR tones (for certain kind of missions) c) sweeping DOR tones - System level approach addressing onboard signal generation, ground station recording, and processing center correlation algorithms. The book provides material that could evolve into a new Magenta Book for the recommendations on architectures and into a new Blue Book for the specific signal structures to be employed (to be issued with the RF&Mod WG)
