The solar power sail mission OKEANOS, planned to be launched in 2026, aims for sample return from a Jovian Trojan asteroid. In this mission, propagation delay (100min) is longer than that of Hayabusa2 (60min). Moreover, it is difficult to get sufficient information to make a success of the image-based navigation used in the previous mission. Another GNC method is required under the condition. This paper proposes an image-based on-board GNC method.
