Abstract: A high-fidelity simulation is developed to test the theory that relative range and range-rate measurements between a satellite in a geosynchronous orbit and a satellite in orbit about the Earth-Moon L1 point may be used to improve the navigation accuracy of both satellites, compared with ground-only tracking. Recent research has determined that satellite-to-satellite range measurements between these two orbits are su cient to perform absolute state estimation as well as relative state estimation of both satellites - a technology known as LiAISON (Linked Autonomous Interplanetary Satellite Orbit Navigation). This study quanties the improvement in accuracy when LiAISON is used to supplement ground tracking of one or both satellites in a very realistic simulation. Orbit determination techniques show that the inclusion of LiAISON measurements with ground tracking observations can greatly improve absolute position and velocity estimates for both satellites in geosynchronous orbit and about the Earth-Moon L1 point.
