Abstract

Celestial navigation is a commonly used autonomous navigation technique for deep space navigation. A nonlinear filter such as the unscented Kalman filter (UKF) is typically applied in a celestial navigation system (CNS). However, on account of being subject to a number of factors, such as ephemeris errors and centroid determination, the measurement model error of a CNS cannot be accurately determined. The analysis conducted in this study also shows that the measurement model error is time-variant during the Mars approach phase. This implies that covariance matrix of the measurement error \textbf{R} is usually inaccurate, which may induce large estimation errors that even result in filter divergence. Some adaptive methods are able to address this issue. However, traditional adaptive filters, for scaling \textbf{R}, usually require a sequence of innovation and are affected by the statistic window size. A new recursive adaptive UKF (RAUKF) is proposed in this paper, which only uses current innovation to scale \textbf{R}. The navigation performance of the proposed RAUKF method is compared with some traditional adaptive filters through simulations. The results show that this method is better than traditional adaptive filters in a CNS during the Mars approach phase.
