Two way ranging and Doppler systems are summarized. Differenced measurements or “differencing,” is explained. For additional explanation on differencing see Penn State’s course for Geospatial and GNSS professionals (https://www.e-education.psu.edu/geog862/node/1727).

The environment and relativity effects on radio and optical communications are introduced. One-way range measurement systems are introduced. GPS is provided as an example but it still applies to GLONASS and Galileo. Two-way range, Doppler, and differenced measurements are considered next.

It is Rocket Science
An example of some of my work for NASA Student Launch. The payload was a Hazard Avoidance Lander using optical systems to avoid landing dangers. The rocket was designed to achieve just under a mile in altitude.
