Technology demonstrator for optical navigation in LEO.
FUTURE will be a technology demonstrator for optical navigation in LEO. It will exploit features extracted from Earth, Moon images, and planetary triangulation to obtain knowledge on its own position. The results will be validated through GPS information, and may be used also for applications beyond Earth orbits.
