AbstractThe Local Space Imaging System (LSIS) proposed here will be capable of continuous, autonomous situational awareness of the local space about a high-value host spacecraft with minimal impact to the host. The LSIS can independently determine instrument inertial attitude and bring a high-resolution imager to bear on a hemispherical field-of-regard. Innovative image processing algorithms will be used to alert ground controllers when there is high confidence of an RSO in the local vicinity of the host. LSIS mass is less than 5 kg. The entire instrument is integrated from proven TRL-9 subcomponents for a low-cost, low-risk solution to local space self-awareness.
