Lunar GPS Sensor

data.nasa.gov | Last Updated 19 Jul 2018

<p>The goal of this project is to develop a specialized GPS sensor prototype to enable high-performance GPS navigation for future cis-lunar and lunar missions. This sensor will be based on the NavCube, the next-generation version of the record-setting high-altitude MMS-Navigator GPS receiver. The proposed GPS sensor will target future lunar missions including robotic and human spaceflight applications. The proposed lunar GPS sensor will combine enhanced GPS signal processing and use the Goddard Enhanced Onboard Navigation System (GEONS) flight software to provide position and timing information for future lunar missions and cis-lunar missions, and will benefit crewed and un-crewed science and exploration missions.</p>
