Abstract: CCSDS (Consultative Committee for Space Data System) published the blue book for pseudo\|noise (PN) ranging systems on March 2009, which will be the standards of PN ranging for international cooperation. The deep space transponders and equipments of deep space stations in China will have the functions of regenerative PN ranging to satisfy the requirements for CCSDS recommendations. The acquisition and ranging jitter performances of the regenerative PN ranging are derived by analyzing the properties of PN codes and acquisition and tracking methods of the codes. The results are in accord with the recommendations of CCSDS and will be important references for designing the regenerative PN ranging systems of the deep space transponders and equipments of the deep space stations.
