Paper Abstract

This paper summarizes our efforts towards the realizaton of an intelligent autonomous tracking and pointing system for space applications. A powerful 3D graphic software testbed has also been developed to simulate a likely scenario of autonomous tracking and pointing operations during a planetary flyby mission.
