Abstract

The system which allows automating the visual monitoring of the spacecraft ATV rendezvous / separations with the international space station is being considered. The initial data for this complex is the video signal received from the TV-camera, mounted on the station board. The offered algorithms of this video signal processing in real time allow restoring the basic characteristics of the spacecraft motion with respect to the international space station. The results of the experiments with the described software and real and virtual video data about the docking approach of the spacecraft with the International Space Station are being presented. The accuracy of the estimation of the motion characteristics and perspectives of the use of the package are being discussed.
