High Resolution, Range/Range-Rate Imager, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

High Resolution, Range/Range-Rate Imager, Phase I
Visidyne proposes to develop a design for a small, lightweight, high resolution, in x, y, and z Doppler imager to assist in the guidance, navigation and control (GN&C) of satellites as for a chaser-target vehicle type scenario. It could therefore be used for rendezvous, circumnavigation, inspection and docking. Key elements for the design are Visidyne?s patented imaging LADAR or monocular 3-D camera design and an innovative, CCD chip extracted from MIT/Lincoln Laboratory, a federally funded research and development center (FFRDC). A novel feature is the ability to cancel, null any gross relative motions between vehicles, thereby greatly improving on the achievable attitude, pose precision. More »
