Neural Space Navigator Camera in Action

Professor Michael Littman of Princeton University, who is a consultant on our Neural Space Navigator NASA Phase I SBIR, has the gimbaled camera in action! Check out the video.

The high dynamic range camera is mounted on a pan/tilt mechanism that uses stepping motors with harmonic drives. Harmonic drives have zero backlash. The camera assembly is 17 cm tall.

The Neural Space Navigator uses a neural network for terrain relative navigation during landings or takeoffs. Otherwise it uses the angles between planetary horizons or centers and stars combined with planetary chord widths for navigation measurements. The system uses an Unscented Kalman Filter and an Inertial Measurement Unit for both navigation and attitude determination. Contact us for more information!
