Small Body Navigation and Topography (SBN&T)(NPO-41647-1)
Small Body Navigation and Topography (SBN&T)
SBN&T provides an integrated program for the spacecraft navigation and determination of small-body dynamics, shape, and high-resolution topography. Multiple-image stereography and photoclinometry are used to construct high-resolution topographic and albedo maps centers treated as control points. These landmark maps are re-illuminated and correlated with images to act as body-fixed navigation tie-points.
This software is only available for use by federal employees and contractors to the federal government working on projects where this tool would be applicable.
