NASA Flight Opportunities Program Psionic Navigation Doppler LIDAR: Precision Navigation Sensor for Lunar Missions [NASA] Overview With a goal of enabling precision navigation inside tight landing ellipses, the Psionic Navigation Doppler Lidar (PNDL) is an optical laser–based system. Measuring range and velocity simultaneously and accurately in four directions, the system provides data on ground speed, height above ground, roll, and pitch. PNDL is also designed to overcome the limitations of conventional radar while mitigating dust and plume interference. Ready for flight testing and vehicle configurable, this fourth-generation system is based on a system previously commercialized as a NASA spinoff. Technology [ READ MORE ]
