Large-scale dimensional measurement in the space environment using multi-lateration techniques
Author(s): Graham Peggs; Ben Hughes; Alistair Forbes

Paper Abstract

Multi-lateration measurement techniques are described which are expected to lead to significant improvements in the accuracy with which large structures, such as optical and x-ray telescopes and radar arrays, could be precisely assembled in space. A high-accuracy system is described, the working volume of which could be significantly extended for use in such applications.
