Autonomous navigation of satellites for space exploration

Intelligent autonomous navigation capability for space exploration includes autonomous approaches to small bodies, rendezvous, landing and surface operations such as surveying and sampling. These manoeuvres and scientific experiments will be performed by robotic craft such as satellites. The proposed area of research intends to investigate vision-based navigation on a satellite to assess the prospective autonomy for space exploration.
