Paper Abstract

A six feature all-sky star field identification algorithm has been developed for interplanetary navigation of autonomous spacecraft. The minimum identifiable star pattern element consists of an oriented star triplet defined by three stars, their celestial coordinates, and visual magnitudes. Two navigational instruments are made obsolete by using this algorithm integrated with the CCD-based imaging camera.
