Abstract:
With the increasing resolution of Earth observational sensors there is an increasing need for reliable, frequent and accurate attitude knowledge. Typically, high accuracy attitude systems incur large mass and costs, limiting the potential missions to which small or inexpensive satellites may apply. A neea tnererore exists tor low-mass, low-cost attitude systems capable or obtaining high accuracy attitude telemetry, especially during image capture and onboard small satellites. Towards such ends, this research investigates the potential use of a narrow stereo angle between pushbroom sensors for determining the attitude of a spacecraft.
