Abstract
To address the Navy"s need for a celestial azimuth sensor, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new system for Stellar Imaging in the infra-Red for AZimuth (SIRAZ). This proposed system is based on a new design that utilizes mature components developed in-house and COTS components. The innovation in novel integration of high-sensitivity photodiodes with MEMS scanning mirrors, coupled with space heritage attitude estimation methodologies, will enable the system to accurately estimate the true north referenced azimuth in diverse weather conditions at any time of the day. As a result, this system offers 870 microrad azimuth accuracy at an update rate of 1 Hz while being compact and weighing
