AbstractIn this paper, we present a summary of the scientific and technical work that has been pursued in the development of sensing, dynamic tracking, and intelligent acquisition systems for space applications. The most up-to date experimental results will be presented with emphasis on immunity to sun interference and compatibility with Inconel and geometrical target tracking. The paper will conclude with an overview of the new space qualified laser scanner prototype developed by Neptec, to be tested onboard the Space Shuttle. This DTO mission is scheduled for summer 2001.
