Applying Deep Learning for Optical Navigation of Solar System Exploration and Earth Observation Missions


Manuel Sanjurjo Rivo (UC3M)


In the context of navigating minor bodies as asteroids, comets or small moons, traditional methods for orbit estimation and navigation may encounter limitations in robustness and precision. In this framework, the proposed work will explore the applicability of Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) for monocular optical navigation of such small bodies, but also to other targets as in Earth Observation, Moon and Planetary missions.
