Abstract
We present experimental results on two breadboard systems developed within ESA contracts dealing with a long-range rendezvous and docking sensor on one hand and a high precision relative attitude control sensor on the other. A rendezvous and docking sensor to be used in a Mars sample return mission has been developed and recently tested over a range of 5 km. A high-speed 3-D laser scanner with range noise below 1 mm was realized and demonstrated. A critical assessment of the performance and potential for further developments of both systems is given.
