Abstract

The paper presents the flight performance of the onboard vision-based navigation software employed during the AVANTI experiment. Two autonomous rendezvous to a noncooperative object have been performed in orbit, first from 13 km to 1 km separation, then from 3 km to 50 m. Despite the poor visibility conditions and the strong orbit perturbations encountered at low altitude, the onboard filter was able to support the onboard guidance and control algorithms with accurate and reliable relative state estimation, enabling thus a safe and smooth approach.
