Abstract

The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) carries a unique instrument capable of determinating small spacecraft disturbances in the micro-radian range. The High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera has been returning quality images since MRO entered its primary Science phase in November 2006. HiRISE data demonstrates that spacecraft motions are smaller than required in high stability mode, so even higher-resolution imaging would not be limited by pointing jitter. Lower-frequency disturbances introduce geometric distortions, but the overlapping HiRISE detectors enable measuring and removing this jitter.
