SEXTANT (Station Explorer for X-ray Timing and Navigation Technology)
High bandwidth communications and advanced navigation capabilities will enable future deep space exploration of the solar system and pinpoint navigation in near-Earth space. The X-ray navigation and communications project element will focus on the development of the X-ray based technologies capable of providing accurate navigation and high bandwidth communications beyond the inner solar system. Technology test beds including those that utilize the ISS will be considered.
