Abstract: Linked Autonomous Interplanetary Satellite Orbit Navigation (LiAISON) is a new technique that takes advantage of the asymmetrical gravity field present in a three-body system in order to perform absolute tracking of satellites using only relative satellite-to-satellite observations. Previous studies have demonstrated LiAISON’s practical applications for lunar missions, including a satellite in a halo orbit about either the Earth-Moon L1 or L2 point. This paper studies the viability of applying LiAISON measurements between a lunar halo orbiter and a satellite in a geosynchronous orbit. Simulations demonstrate that the absolute positions and velocities of both satellites are observable using only relative measurements with an achieved uncertainty on the order of observation noise.
