Application of a Counter Propagation Neural Network for Star Identification

Roberts, Peter J. & Walker, Rodney A. (2005) Application of a Counter Propagation Neural Network for Star Identification. In AIAA Guidance, Navigation, and Control Conference and Exhibit, 15 - 18 August 2005, San Francisco, CA.


During research underway at the Queensland University of Technology in the area of satellite technologies, the need for a fast, accurate and reliable star identification method presented itself. This paper presents one approach to solving this problem in a nonconventional manner. A Counter Propagation Neural Network has been implemented and tested producing favourable results. Presented in this paper is the incorporation of the Counter Propagation Neural Network into the star sensor, the network structure, simulations of implementations and results.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
