Presentation Rendezvous strategy for the active debris removal missions

In the Active Debris Removal (ADR) mission, the chaser satellite should approach to and rendezvous with the non-cooperative space debris. Since non-cooperative target does not have precise orbit information nor any navigation aids such as laser reflectors or markers, it is difficult for the chaser to perform reliable relative navigation against the debris. image sensors, such as visible cameras and infrared cameras, are considered effective navigation sensors which can be used in wide ranges. However, functions and performances required to these sensors have not been clarified. In this study, authors suggest a practical rendezvous scenario which secures the trajectory safety and clarifies the requirements regarding relative navigation.
