    The classical method of selecting ranging-codes is based on the finite field theory so that the range of selecting combination codes is much small,and it is also very difficult to obtain the enough code number and better cross-correlation performance.Therefore,an!algorithm of searching the m sequences and their preferred pairs in the global field is presented in this paper.Meanwhile,three schemes to generate the ranging codes of navigation satellites are also discussed in detail.All ranging-code sequence combinations can be gotten by using the algorithm.And then the ranging-code sequences with enough number and better cross-correlation performance can be generated from the selected Gold code family.Finally,by comparing the selected ranging-codes with GPS C/A codes on the assignable code number and auto-and cross-correlation features,the advantage of the selected ranging-codes and the feasibility of the algorithm can be illustrated preliminarily.

    Height measuring by master satellite and concomitant satellite formation InSAR system being the background,the problem of the concomitant satellite formation configuration optimal design is studied.Firstly,the criterionof optimization is defined as maximumtime ratio of effectual observationwhich describes the measurement performance in a whole orbit period. Correspondingly the CartWheel-like satellite formations are focused on,in which satellites are in the same concomitant orbit around the virtualcenter with symmetrical distribution.The ratioof two amplitudes and the difference of two phases in relativemotion are served as variables of optimization.By a numerical simulation a figure is found out,which shows the relation between the criterion of optimization and the variables of optimization.The orbit elements of the satellites in the best configuration are provided. Then the method estimating fuel consumption for formation keeping and orbit maintaining is given and the necessaryfuel mass of the best configuration for a period one year is calculated.Last a beneficialconclusion is drawn,which will be of some help to the optimizationof whole InSAR system.

    Abstract ( 1706 )   Save
    The uncertainties in aerodynamics and initial conditions are considered for assessing the robustness of the trajectory.The approach of assessing the robustness is the same algorithms used in designing the original auto landing trajectory,i.e.the method based on the 3 degrees-of-freedom nonlinear equations of motion which governing dynamic pressure.The energy potentialis defined as the measure of the ability to increase and decrease energy to remove energy dispersions.The touchdown characters,the allowable uncertainties in aerodynamics and dynamic pressure disturbance rejection are assessed when in the presence of uncertainties in aerodynamics.The result showsthat the trajectory is robust.

    Abstract ( 1840 )   Save
    A sail force control algorithm is proposed,first analyzing the acceleration components to determine which one affects the orbit elements most and then continuously orienting the sail to maximize the solar radiation pressure SRP force along the direction of this component.Then through the analysis of the interactional relations of the orbit elements when they are modified,a control strategy is proposed to correct several orbit deviations at the same time.The oblateness perturbation of the Earth J_2 term only,as well as the gravitational perturbation of the sun and the moon is considered in the numerical simulation,while atmospheric drag and shadowing effects of the Earth are neglected.Numerical results indicate that using a solar sail to fulfill the task of orbit corrections is feasible.Furthermore,an appropriate orientation of the sun is a necessary condition of quick and efficient orbit modification.

    An Integrated Model for Dynamic Behavior of CPL

    Abstract ( 1533 )   Save
    A transient model of a CPL has been developed to predict the thermal and dynamic behavior.This model comprises two coupled modules: the thermal module and the hydrodynamic module.The objective of this numerical model is to study the mechanisms of the unstable behavior during the cyclical functioning of the CPL.The simulative processes include the start-up,the temperature oscillations in the reservoir and the heat load change in the evaporator.The numerical results agree with the experimental data.Moreover,this model is used to explain the reason that the start-up becomes a failure easily,the abrupt change of the heat load can lead to the evaporator deprime.It also can reveal that the temperature oscillations in the reservoir are disadvantageous to the operation of CPL.
