Abstract: THIS PAPER DEALS WITH various Doppler techniques that are applicable to the determination of one or more components of the velocity of a space vehicle. Earth-based as well as vehicleborne systems are considered. The techniques may be classified as active, cooperative, or passive. With regard to each, there is discussion of preferred regions of the electromagnetic spectrum, the types of missions where application seems most promising, and of the chief attributes and limitations. Consideration is also given to the possible uses of velocity data in space missions and to the relative merit of Doppler as compared to other techniques for obtaining such data.
