Abstract

A six-feature all-sky star-field identification algorithm is developed. The minimum identifiable star-pattern element consists of an oriented star triplet defined by three stars, their celestial coordinates, and their visual magnitudes. The performance of the star-pattern identification algorithm is verified through the use of software simulation.
