Paper Abstract

A rugged, miniaturized, optical cross-correlator that recognizes a single object is particularly suitable for performing a single-vision function, such as pattern recognition for semi- autonomous navigation, landing, and docking of vehicles to a pre-designated landing mark. The optical cross-correlator, with a video input from a simple imaging system and the output of the optical correlation plane processed using the standard star tracker software, produces sufficient information for a spacecraft's terminal homing navigation system to complete a docking maneuver.
