Digistar: A low cost micro star tracker Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • © 1999 by the authors. We describe an analytical, computational, and experimental study designed to gain the insights needed for a third generation star tracker and realtime attitude determination system. Novel features include some refinements of methods for preliminary and final attitude estimation, and star catalog design and real-time access. We summarize analysis, computation, design, and ground validation of hardware and software.
