dc.description.abstract The technique of determining spacecraft angular position by Delta Differential One-Way Ranging (DeltaDOR) is described. The dependence of measurement accuracy on parameters which define the spacecraft signal spectrum is shown. An illustration of DeltaDOR measurement accuracy, using the Mars Observer spacecraft, is presented. Guidelines for specifying spacecraft tone spectra are presented based on typical accuracy and ambiguity resolution needs, on frequency allocation for deep space tracking, on the efficient use of spacecraft signal power, and on the efficient use of ground tracking resources. en_US
