Paper Abstract

A star sensor simulator was developed, which models the characteristics of the star, the background, the sensor's windows, the telescope, the detector, the electronics, and the environment, generating data which are similar to data received from a real star sensor. The simulated data are then processed to reveal the star sensing capability. The paper discusses the requirements of the star sensor simulator, the models used, and the simulator design and presents representative simulations.
