Abstract
A kinematic description of a star spot in the focal plane is presented for star sensors under dynamical conditions, which involves all necessary parameters such as the image motion, velocity, and attitude parameters of the vehicle. Stars at different locations of the focal plane correspond to the slightly different orientation and extent of motion blur, which characterize the space-variant point spread function. Finally, the image motion, the energy distribution, and centroid extraction are numerically investigated using the kinematic model under dynamic conditions. A centroid error of eight successive iterations <0.002 pixel is used as the termination criterion for the Richardson-Lucy deconvolution algorithm. The kinematic model of a star sensor is useful for evaluating the compensation algorithms of motion-blurred images.
