Man portable integrated telescope/robotic mount and satellite tracking system prototype. System is designed to locate, photograph and develop vector records of satellites and link the known orbit data to the vector records.
- Developed database to handle portable FITS images and with enhanced image attribution.
- Enhanced robotic slewing algorithms to assist in locating satellite while maintaining TLE vector.
Rapid development of software with API for robotic mount, Apogee camera, and lens filter wheel. Developed and field tested system within eight months.
