Paper Abstract

This paper presents an efficient approach for relative navigation and parameter estimation of spacecraft flying in formation. The approach estimates the double differential carrier phase ambiguity in single epoch, avoiding the trouble of cycle-slip detection and fixing. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed approach can achieve centimeter-level relative position accuracy and millimeter-level velocity accuracy.
