    Abstract ( 1724 )   Save
    Fast maneuver of flexible satellite system often requires large attitude changing with reduction of vibration. In this paper, pulse sequence control methodology is presented based on unconstrained mode equations to suppress residual vibration; besides, pulse sequence programming is proposed to minimize maneuvering time. The methods can meet the requirements of the fast maneuver and without residual vibration after maneuvering. Moreover, it is very suitable to satellite systems equipped with on off jets and reaction wheels. Finally, numeric simulation is explored to verify the validity of pulse sequence control.

    Abstract ( 1712 )   Save
    In this paper, a new embedded 3D wavelet video coding method with 3D SPECK is considered. The method is based on real 3D wavelet packet transform, and implements a three dimensional extension of SPECK in still image coding by defining a new block structure. The method does not involve motion estimation, and has lower computational complexity and coding latency , and can make full embedded video streams. Experimental results show that the method is able to compress video rapidly and effectively, and is a video coding method with great potentials.

    Abstract ( 1501 )   Save
    Arcjet attracts more and more researchers today, because its specific impulse is higher than the thrusters with chemical propellants. A electrostatic probe diagnostics system used in vacuum environment, for the measurement of the electronic temperature of the Arcjet plume plasma is established. The electronic temperature of the Arcjet plume, with argon as the propellant , is measured by this system, and the axial and radial distribution electronic temperature of plume is obtained. The result shows that the electronic temperature is much higher than the heavy particle temperature in the axis of the Arcjet plume.

    Abstract ( 1798 )   Save
    In the domain of surveying and mapping , users present rigorous requirements for the image quality. But there are noises in the image data, so lossy compression is feasible. In this paper, a method of remote image lossy compression in control is presented. First, the feasibility of remote image lossy compression is analysed. Then the method of two layer and two dimension wavelet transform to decompose original image is adopted, and 7 high frequency quantizers according to remote image's feature is created. At last, the relation between the compresion ratio and peak peak SNR at the different high frequency quantizers is stakied.

    Abstract ( 1710 )   Save
    RCS of space object is nonstationary time series, it is difficult to do feature extracting using common time series analysis methods. Fractal Brown Motion model is used in this paper for feature extracting. The results using real data show that fractal cimension of RCS is a useful feature for space object target recognition.

    Abstract ( 1629 )   Save
    A two dimensional numerical model is developed to simulate the dynamic and thermal behavior and to estimate the performance of the evaporator of a CPL. The vaporization problem of the working fluid is handled with using enthalpy equation, which avoids using time consuming selfadaption mesh techmique but is easy to track and maintain the liquid vapor interface, so it is convenient to handle with the capillary force in porous medium. The introducing source term in the momentum equations, which acts different capillary force is calculated at different liquid vapor fronts. Numerical results under different working conditions are presented.

    Analysis for Vibration of Side Viewing Mirror in Satellite Camera and Its Effect in Microgravity

    Abstract ( 1598 )   Save
    This paper presents the image oscillation of CBERS 02 CCD camera in ground test and its effect on image quality, and the reason oscillation is due to the vibration of the side viewing mirror. The vibration mechanism is discussed as follow: the spring of the worm wheel elasticity and the worn spring forms a integrate spring and becomes a resonant system. In resonant condition, the outside disturb will be magnified. Thus the method for decreasing or overcoming vibration of the mirror is got. Besides, in orbital condition the camera image quality are fine. It shows that the vibration of the mirror has been overcomed, which explains that the vibration of the mirror does not increase in microgravity.

    Abstract ( 1646 )   Save
    The modern communication theory is used in the analysis of imaging systems. The object information density model is built for analogue and digital image respectively. The utility of sub pixel technology is evaluated with the increment of object information density. This model is applied in the design of linear array CCD camera, the effect of the system's modulation transfer function (MTF) and signal to noise ration (SNR) on the quality of images is studied. It is found that the image's object information density would improve with the lift of SNR, and the effect of MTF is related with object's characteristics.
