dc.description.abstract COBALT (CoOperative Blending of Autonomous Landing Technologies) is a NASA technology development and test program to advance precision landing capabilities for future soft landers. The COBALT payload demonstrated terrain relative navigation utilizing the Lander Vision System and Navigation Doppler Lidar sensors on the Masten Space Systems Xodiac rocket. In spring 2017, the program culminated in two open-loop free flights to 500 m altitude with downrange diverts of 300 m. The COBALT system performed well, navigating within meters of the Xodiac vehicle’s GPS-based solution. This paper outlines details of the navigation filter and its performance during the test campaign. en_US
