Critical technologies required to achieve precise relative positioning in Medium Earth Orbit, developed in the NAVISP context, can support scientists to advance on their understanding of physical cosmology. As a use case, the challenging scenario of getting a sharp image of the event horizon of a black hole, is considered to explore the limits of relative positioning in MEO. This use case…
