By Lu, Feng Zhang, Xiaohu; Xu, Jianmin ABSTRACT An automatic image navigation algorithm for Feng Yun 2 (FY2) spin-stabilized geosynchronous meteorological satellites was determined at the National Satellite Meteorological Center (NSMC) of the China Meteorological Administration (CMA). This paper derives the parameters and coordinate systems used in FY2 image navigation, with an emphasis on attitude and misalignment parameters. The solution to the navigation model does not depend on any...
