Abstract

The paper describes a GPS based tracking system for the IRDT-2 re-entry capsule. The mission serves for the conceptual validation of a download system that has been developed by German and Russian space industry as an altenative for returing small payloads from the International Space Station. The IRDT capsule will be launched from a submarine and perform a short ballistc flight before re-entering the atmosphere. Using an inflatable aerobraking shield, the capsule will finally be landed on the Kamshatka peninsula. The navigation system is based on a Mitel GPS Orion receiver that is supplemented by a dedicated data handling unit. The paper describes the design of the receiver and the required software modifications for reliable tracking and rapid acquisition under high dynamics. In addition various signal simulatro tests and sounding rocket flight results are presented that demonstrate th actual receiver performance.
