Abstract

Navigation for Future Space Exploration Missions Based on Imaging LiDAR Technologies  

The smooth landing of Curiosity on Mars in August 2012 with a precision never previously achieved is a remarkable example of what can be accomplished by autonomous exploration space crafts. In the near future, several planned European or international exploration missions (Mars Sample Return, Marco Polo-B) will also include a phase of controlled descent and soft-landing with even higher precision requirements. Their success stands largely in the ability to perform Terrain Relative Navigation (TRN) and surface Hazard Detection (HD) as these missions will land in areas pockmarked and crowded with craters, crevasses and boulders. Imaging LiDAR is considered to be the critical enabling technology to provide these capabilities to landers. After a review of the most significant future exploration missions scenarios and their requirements for proximity navigation, the keynote will present imaging LiDAR architectures and their key subsystems.
