Abstract

Autonomous use of optical sensors for obtaining self-contained navigation solutions in a lunar orbit that are independent of ground or other external aids is explored. Tracking of multiple unknown landmarks on the Moon is considered along with a disk measurement providing range information from infrared sensors. Sensitivity of the navigation performance to sensor accuracy, measurement frequency, and initial error is assessed. Navigation performance obtained from tracking unknown landmarks is compared with performance obtained from tracking known landmarks.
