The ultimate goal of this work is to demonstrate the capability of a maneuverable servicer spacecraft to rendezvous with a non-cooperative space resident object from far-range distance using optical angles-only measurements. To this end, the Advanced Rendezvous experiment using GPS and Optical Navigation (ARGON) has been executed during the extended phase(More)
This paper proposes an image processing method for far range rendezvous. A target spacecraft at distances up to 30 km is tracked from camera images. The method is based on linking bright, connected sets of pixels over sequences of images. Stars and the target spacecraft are identified by using a star catalog and performing motion segmentation. The algorithm(More)
