|Abstract: ||The first fully autonomous deep-space navigation system ever implemented is planned to guide the New Millenium Deep Space-1 mission to an asteroid and comet beginning in mid-1998. This system is based to a large extent on Optical Navigation (OPNAV) technology developed for the NASA/JPL interplanetary exploration probes Voyager and Galileo. This paper describes the structure and algorithmic content of the Autonomous OPNAV system. The system has several major autonomous functions: picture planning, image analysis, orbit determination, manuever design and general interaction with other onboard autonomous systems.|
