    A signal processing analysis of star trackers for navigation and guidance was conducted as a part of the Star Tracker Aerospace Reference Study. The signal processing analysis is based on the similarity between communication system theory and the several types of star trackers. The navigation system and star tracker parameters are the trade-off items that permit operation within the bounds set by ... View full abstract»

    Celestial tracking systems employed in the navigation of military vehicles in the atmosphere of the earth have the capability of tracking a large number of stars in the daytime. In daytime tracking, the quantum efficiency of the detector, as well as additional sensitivity gain through electronic charge storage, is of primary importance. Theoretical formulas for the signal-to-noise ratios of four d... View full abstract»

    The systems engineer, in formulating and analyzing star tracking systems, is often confronted with conversion of lengthy coordinate transformation matrices into meaningful physical data. The matrices associated with vector analysis and the equations of spherical trigonometry used in celestial and space applications often defy orderly and concise interpretation. One becomes lost in a maze of sines,... View full abstract»

    This paper is concerned with the problem of recognizing stars by means of their optical radiation characteristics, for use in the guidance and navigation of aerospace vehicles. We conclude that there are three easily measurable independent parameters in the radiation from individual stars which permit unique recognition of the brightest stars above the earth's atmosphere. Accurate spectral data ob... View full abstract»

  • The Celestial Tracker as an Astro Compass

    Publication Year: 1963, Page(s):221 - 235
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (5176 KB)

    This paper describes a navigational system which accurately determines aircraft true heading and an altitude intercept from which position is determined. This is accomplished by automatically and continuously tracking the light from a celestial body with a stabilized telescope utilizing a photomultiplier tube as the sensor. The line-of-sight to the body is accurately measured with respect to the l... View full abstract»

    Basic inertial navigation systems used in cruise applications will, in general, experience position errors that continue to increase with time. A cruise vehicle is considered here to be one which may be expected to operate for periods of time between a few minutes to several months, and at velocities from near zero to Mach 3 near the surface of the earth. Various methods of augmenting the basic in... View full abstract»

    The earth's horizon provides an important and conspicuous basis for the development of self-contained systems for earth-satellite navigation. The present paper investigates horizonbased navigational systems in which the requirement for vehicular yaw stabilization is not imposed. This permits the development of a variety of navigational techniques which generally fall within one of the following di... View full abstract»

    Pattern recognition and the determination of relative attitude are capabilities of an electro-optical map matching device that utilizes two-dimensional correlation data processing techniques. This device is the basic element of a Universal Space Tracker that provides pitch, yaw and roll data with respect to the recognized field (either planetary surface, star field, or planetary rim) for space veh...

    If a practical system is to be realized within the predictable future, the design of instrumentation for space navigation is contingent upon the meaningful definition of the mission, proper choice of navigation or guidance concept, optimum integration of the human operator and independence from technological breakthroughs. The mission must be considered and categorized in terms of the characterist... View full abstract»
