The first six months of asteroid proximity operations for the OSIRIS-REx mission is known as the Navigation Campaign – a portion of the mission designed to optimize initial characterization of asteroid Bennu and its dynamical environment in support of initial orbit insertion and transition from star-based to landmark-based optical navigation. During this time, the spacecraft executed 16 maneuvers across a large range of AV magnitudes. This work discusses the spacecraft trajectory design of the Navigation Campaign, which enabled the collection of critical information that led to the achievement of these milestones, A and a summary of the performance of executed maneuvers.
