IDEAS FOR MULTISPECTRAL CAMERAS WITH STACKED PIXELS FOR STAR TRACKING AND OPTICAL NAVIGATION Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • This paper presents a new concept for multispectral (color sensitive) cameras with important additional features with respect to traditional star trackers and optical navigation cameras. The main concept is to use an image sensor with stacked pixels, where each pixel layer constitutes a spectral filter for the layers below. The paper describes the limitations of commonly used technologies for color discrimination and shows how they can be solved by using an image sensor with stacked pixels.
