ANALYSIS OF THE APPLICATION OF IMAGEFORMING PHOTOSENSORS TO WIDE FIELD- OF-VIEW DAYLIGHT STAR TRACKERS
HONEYWELL INC ST PETERSBURG FL
Pagination or Media Count:
The report analyzes the performance limitations of wide field-of-view approximately one degree by one degree daylight startracking systems employing image-forming photosensors. The startracker was assumed to be an alignment reference for an inertial guidance system. Assumed system parameters are general enough to make results applicable to both air-and missile-borne applications, and to unrestricted operating altitudes.
