Although images of space objects have been used for decades, there are many common challenges in the use of image data for planetary science, optical navigation, and space situational awareness. Many of these challenges may be addressed by recent advancements in imaging sensors, computer vision algorithms, and computing resources - all of which set the stage for a fundamental change in how we will exploit image data for future space missions. This workshop aims to facilitate the dissemination of ideas between all of the communities using space image data and to identify areas of common need. The unique workshop format will include oral presentations, poster sessions, and focused breakout sessions to discuss topics of interest.

Abstracts are sought in all aspects of image analysis for space applications, and may be submitted to one of the following three categories: presentation (manuscript optional), poster (manuscript optional), student competition (manuscript required). Example topics of particular interest include:

  • Image processing techniques as applied to space imagery
  • Estimation of a body’s photometric properties from images
  • Stereophotoclinometry (SPC)
  • Lightcurve inversion
  • Optical navigation (OPNAV)
  • 3D modeling of space objects from 2D imagery
  • Image-based terrain relative navigation (TRN)
  • Simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM)
  • Space imaging hardware

Outstanding technical papers from the workshop will be invited for submission to a special issue of the Journal of the Astronautical Sciences.
