Pulsar Navigation for Crewed Exploration of the Solar System - Year 2

Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

Pulsar Navigation for Crewed Exploration of the Solar System - Year 2
The Deep Space Gateway station will need to be able to navigate autonomously without relying on the DSN and the ground to determine its navigation state. X-ray navigation will complement optical navigation to provide a navigation capability that will be essential for Human Space Exploration missions. This technology addresses two key requirements: accurate navigation and autonomy, a key JSC Technology Focus Area. More »
