Paper Abstract

In this paper, the improvement in the image navigation and registration (INR) obtained by using two star trackers onboard a GOES satellite is investigated. The star trackers would augment the current INR system to eliminate the nonrepeatable errors caused mainly by the Earth sensor. The focus is on decreasing the spacecraft bus attitude error component in the total INR error budget with minimal changes to the current system.
