Abstract. A method is proposed for spacecraft orientation in geocentric equatorial system of coordinates in the absence of data on orbit parameters. The method is based on astronomical measurements and the subsequent recognition of stars.
Keywords: star identification, autonomous spacecraft orientation, optical-electronic instrument, astronomical measurements
