Paper Abstract

A sensor designed to aid in the docking of spacecraft is under development for NASA by Cubic Corporation. This sensor uses three lasers to track the prospective target and to determine the required parameters necessary to calculate the ideal approach maneuver. The system combines the inputs from several sensors, including polarization, continuous tone DME, and a CID to achieve the desired results.
