Paper Abstract

HDOS'HD-1003 Star Tracker is now in production for a variety of NASA and DoD space programs. It owes its success to its unique combination of small size (only seven pounds, 190 cu. in.) and high performance. Deliveries of the production tracker began in early 1996. Environmental qualification was completed in July 1996, and the first space flight is imminent aboard NASA's SSTI spacecraft. This paper provides a brief overview of the HD-1003 design and mission applications, and highlights qualification test results that establish HD-1003 as the premier multi-star tracker for future space programs.
