contexte ** Procédé de chrono-datation selon l’une des revendications 12 à 14, mis en œuvre au moyen d’au moins deux dispositifs de chrono-datation (10) respectivement associés à au moins l’un des points d’un parcours sur lequel un objet se déplace, caractérisé en ce qu’au cours de l’étape de prise de vue (520), on réalise des prises de vue sur lesquelles l’objet se situe aux points auxquels sont associés les dispositifs de chrono-datation (10), et en ce qu’au cours de l’étape de datation (530) on détermine au moins, en temps de référence, l’intervalle de temps intervenu entre les passages de

Explanation:
I think the author has just shortened the term to "datation" the second time she or he uses it, for stylistic reasons.
There's no reason why you can't repeat the term in English though.

"Horodatation" is possibly the more commonly-used term.

With the extra context, then yes, it would be date-stamping (with a dash).

Presumably used in astronomy for phenomena for which just a date is required, not a time as well.

Notes to answerer
Asker: thank you ; but would it be more accurate if I say "date stamping" as I have the context : (..le champ de vue (30) du ou de chaque instrument optique (12) est orienté vers un phénomène observable, et en ce qu’au cours de l’étape de datation (530), on détermine la date en temps de référence du phénomène observable à partir de la longueur d’onde et/ou de l’intensité du ou des signaux lumineux....)
