Sensor Vectors Modeling for Small Satellite Attitude Determination

S. Chouraqui, M. Benyettou and A. Si Mohammed

Abstract:
The orientation (Roll, Pitch, Yaw) of the spacecraft on its orbit is defined with respect to the vehicle`s reference frame. The attitude of spacecraft can be determined from one or a combination of the following sensors: gyroscope, sun sensor, star sensor, horizon sensor and magnetometer. In this study we are going to give a mathematical model of the earth horizon sensor to obtain the horizon vector pairs which are used by a vector state filter to estimate the satellite attitude.
