Paper Abstract

A star tracker for a mission to the planet Pluto is described. Low mass, low power and high levels of performance are required at the lowest possible cost. These goals are achieved for the FY94 baseline Pluto mission by a modified, commercially available star tracker, the HD- 1003, from Hughes Danbury Optical Systems, The Pluto mission, the spacecraft design, the star tracker and its performance are discussed.
