Abstract
A method is presented for building an internal world model of a local on-orbit reference frame using typical sensor data available to a robotic spacecraft. In accordance with the approach proposed here, the model is driven by the Clohessey-Wiltshire (CW) equations to predict future states for maneuver planning and monitoring during sensor blackout. Errors due to inaccuracies in the CW equations, atmospheric drag, and nonuniformities in the earth''s gravitational field are discussed with reference to simulation results.
