Abstract: Prospects for resolving the orbital motions of several binary pulsars with future < 100 μas astrometric capabilities are excellent. I discuss the motivation, assess candidate targets, and derive requirements for future observations. Very long baseline interferometry (VLBI), and especially the proposed low-frequency space-VLBI mission RADIOASTRON, can provide new insights into binary evolution and relativistic gravity by complementing high-precision pulse timing experiments.
