A Radio Frequency (RF) based sensor, called the Autonomous Formation Flying (AFF) sensor', has been developed to enable deep space precision formation flying by measuring the relative range and bearing angles between multiple spacecraft. The AFF sensor operates at Ka-band and uses signal-processing schemes inherited from the Global Positioning System (GPS). The key features of the AFF sensor are: (a) it operates autonomously without the aid of spacecraft or ground control, (b) it simultaneouslydoi:10.1109/aero.2003.1235048 fatcat:rs2fxiovgzcthnpgyyrr76fo4a
