Paper Abstract

Autonomous Feature And Star Tracking (AFAST), essential technology for building autonomous spacecraft that explore solar system bodies, is described. The architecture and processing requirements of the systems compromising AFAST are presented for probable mission scenarios. The focus is on celestial-scene interpretation, the implications of that interpretation for AFAST systems, and an AFAST technology status.
