This paper means to comprehend vision-based relative navigation strategies which are utilized for small/micro satellites. Advancements dependent on this technique are utilized separately or joined with one another to deal with relative position issues. The benefits and detriments of vision-based relative navigation models change as indicated by space of utilization and stage type. Various strategies and approaches exist and need distinctive assessment and advanced algorithms for variation, control, and sensor combination. Each of the models centering inside expects those ideal disposition conditions. This paper just spotlights on relative route and distance point of view. Additionally, the point of this article is to comprehend the connection between's general navigation control frameworks and the adequacy of calculation, which are utilized in assessing the states during gathering or development flight/development.
