Aug. 2014, ATV-5 / Georges Lemaître Automated Transfer Vehicule docked to ISS


In addition to nominal GN&C equipment used for ATV attitude control and docking, two Star Trackers and two Rendez-vous sensors, Sodern supplied Visible and Infrared Cameras for Laser InfraRed Imaging Sensor (LIRIS) demonstration.
Images taken by the three cameras will be returned to Earth and used to validate new algorithms for next generation docking sensors.
