Advanced Spacecraft Navigation and Timing Using Celestial Gamma-Ray Sources, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Advanced Spacecraft Navigation and Timing Using Celestial Gamma-Ray Sources, Phase I
The proposed novel program will use measurements of the high-energy photon output from gamma-ray celestial sources to design a new, unique navigation system. This Gamma-ray source Localization-Induced Navigation and Timing, or "GLINT", concept provides deep-space vehicles the capability for self-navigation based upon measurements from observations of these source signals.
