Paper Abstract

Global shutter flash LIDAR is the sensor of choice for space-based autonomous relative navigation applications. Advanced Scientific Concepts (ASC) has recently delivered LIDAR cameras to the NASA / Lockheed- Martin OSIRSRex and the NASA / Boeing CST-100 Starliner programs. These are two of the first operational space programs to use global shutter, flash LIDAR based relative navigation systems. The OSIRIS-REx spacecraft was launched in September 2016 and is the first opportunity to understand how global shutter flash LIDAR performance and reliability is impacted by long term exposure to the deep space environment.
