Paper Abstract

Optical measuring angle data can be used in initial orbit determination. However, optical system has its magnitude limit, the initial orbits can not be determined when targets’ magnitudes are above the limited magnitude or the relative size of the target can not meet the resolution requirements. In order to expand the observable range of optical system and improve the accuracy of the orbit, it is necessary to improve the limited magnitude and the limited resolution of the system. This paper discusses the feasibility of initial orbit determination using camera array and provide the core processes of initial orbit determination using camera array. The experimental results show the effectiveness of the camera array to improve the system’s limited magnitude and the limited resolution.
