Abstract

This publication describes the determination of changes in the relative phase ofa transmitting source by utilizing the receivers optimum sampling point From a digital phase detector/integrator as phase information. This system is particularly useful in a burst mode satellite to satellite link where range rate information can be derived from relative prop- agation delay or differential time-of-arrival (DTOA) changes.
