Space data and information transfer systems -- Pseudo-Noise (PN) Ranging Systems
ISO 18423:2015 defines both transparent and regenerative PN ranging systems for non?data relay satellite users. The specification for PN code components and generation, on-board spacecraft regenerative/transparent processing, ground station processing, and uplink and downlink signal modulation are defined in this document. This Recommended Standard does not specify a) individual implementations or products, b) implementation of service interfaces within real systems, or c) the management activities required to configure and control the protocol.
