Abstract: IN NAVIGATION A SPACE VEHICLE anywhere between a few kilometers and a few hundred thousand kilometers of another vehicle, a satellite, or a planet, one will want most to know two quantities- the distance to the other object, and the velocity of your vehicle with respect to the other object. Hitherto, microwave radar has been considered the most powerful tool that will be available for such measurements, in most circumstances.
