Until Feb., 2017, XPNAV-1 has observed three sources, that is, PSR B0531+21 (Crab), PSR B0540-69, and PSR B1509-58.
From coordinate universal time (UTC) 57709.0 in modified Julian date (MJD) to 57872.0 MJD, TSXS carried out 162 segments of observations upon PSR B0531+21. These TSXS observation data are made public and can be downloaded at the Beidou official website [19].
They are PSR B0531+21, PSR B1509-58, and PSR B0540-69.
The data processing results of PSR B0531+21 are shown in Figure 8.
By simulating the photon data of the two typical pulsars (PSR B0531+21 and PSR B1937+21), the paper analyzes the performance of the method.
