Paper Abstract

Necessity to increase and retain the star trackers high accuracy leads to search of the new approaches to their making. The most promising way is providing these devices with a property of self-adapting to the dislocations of their geometric scheme, which consists of the fact that the devices accuracy does not deteriorate at deformation of their geometry. The methods of making nonunbalancing, self- calibrating and combined optical systems of the adaptive star trackers are reviewed, whose usage allows not only provide high accuracy but also reduce a mass of the mechanical components, widen the tolerances at their manufacturing and lower the net cost. The optical systems are presented, that illustrate the given methods.
