Paper Abstract

The GOES I-M image navigation and registration (INR) system was developed and patented by Space Systems/Loral in response to NASA/NOAA pointing requirements of Imager and Sounder payloads. This INR system is divided into space segment and ground segment. The space segment consist of image motion compensation (IMC) system that compensates for deterministic errors caused by orbit and attitude motions and mirror motion compensations system that compensates for spacecraft attitude motion caused by Imager and Sounder scanner mirror motion. The ground segment consists mainly of Orbit and Attitude Tracking System (OATS) that determines the IMC orbit and attitude coefficients from star, landmark, and range measurements.
