Title: Evaluation of Star Identification Techniques
Authors: Padgett, Curtis
Kreutz-Delago, Kenneth
Udomkesmalee, Suraphol
Issue Date: 1996
Abstract: A number of different strategies are used or have been suggested for identifying star fields atitude determination in space. We offer a general classification of the existing techniques and select three representative algorithms for more comprehensive evaluation. In addition, we describe a software simulation environment we developed for the design, paramter determination, and evaluation of star identification algorithms. The identification rates and performance on the three algorithms are presented over a variety of noise conditions using two different sized onboard catalogs.
