Abstract

The REGATTA-ASTRO project provides a great set of astrometric and photometric measurements from Small Space Laboratory (SSL). SSL is a special spacecraft being designed at the Space Research Institute, USSR Academy of Sciences. The main feature of this spacecraft is the attitude control by solar light pressure. The main objective of the project is to compile precise global catalogues of star positions, parallaxes and proper motion containing stars with magnitude up to 8-9 and a position accuracy of 0.″01. The astrometric concept of the project is based on a highly deterministic spacecraft angular motion and numerous observations of each star using wide-angle TV cameras with CCD detectors. The SSL computer provides measurement data pre-processing, photometric referencing and data compression. Ground-based computers process the data statistically. The estimated vector includes star coordinates, SSL angular motion parameters and generalized distortion of the instruments used.
