    Aiming at the collision force control problem of space robots in capturing floating targets, the dynamic model of the space robot′s catching target and the contact collision model with the target are established. The parameters such as the closing speed of the claw and the initial position of the target are analyzed. On the basis of this, the taskfirst inverse kinematics solution method is used to design the capture force control method based on explicit force control, the collision force control method based on external force control and the collision force based on explicit force control. The control method is compared and analyzed. The results show that the collision force control method based on the explicit force control can achieve the collision force control that meets the requirements of stationarity, and the required pedestal thrust and joint control torque are small.

    Aiming at the problem of sudden changes in the attitudes encountered by satellites while performing complex tasks such as discarding a payload or capturing a target, a satellite attitude control method based on the deep reinforcement learning is proposed to restore the satellite to a stable state. Concretely, the attitude dynamics environment of the vehicle is firstly established, and the output of continuous control torque is discretized. Deep Q Network algorithm is then performed to train the autonomous attitude control of the satellite for further processing, and the optimal intelligent output of discrete behavior is rewarded with the stabilization of attitude angular velocity. Finally, the validity of the mechanism is verified by the simulation test. Results analysis illustrates that the deep reinforcement learning algorithm for satellite attitude control can stabilize satellite attitude after the satellite is disturbed by sudden random disturbance, and it can effectively solve the problem of traditional PD controller depending on the mass parameters of the controlled object. The proposed method adopts selflearning to control the satellite attitude, which has strong intelligence and universal applicability, and has a strong application potential for future intelligent control of satellites performing complex space tasks.

By studying the mainstream signal combination algorithms, an improved Sumple algorithm based on phase comprehension is put forward. This algorithm is more efficient than the original Sumple algorithm, and moreover its combined signal has the same phase performance as that of the reference signal, which is the premise of antenna array technique used for interferometry. Finally, tests are conducted by using phased array data and simulated DOR signal data. The processing results show that the signal combination improves the delay estimation accuracy of interferometry, and is of special meaning in deep space exploration.

    he next generation of space products put forward higher demand for energy storage system, and the surface modification method is proposed to improve the cyclic stability of LiNi0.8Co0.15Al0.05O2 (NCA) cathode material in lithium ion batteries. By using phosphoric acid (H3PO4) to treat the NCA cathode materials, H3PO4 reacts with the lithiumcontaining alkaline substances on the surface of NCA, so as to generate a stable and conductive Li3PO4 interface layer on the surface of NCA particles. As a result, the H3PO4modified NCA shows better capacity retention (170.5mA·h/g,94%) and lower impedance after 50 cycles than the bare one, which is attributed to the presence of the Li3PO4based coating layer. H3PO4 surface modification method has positive effects on the electrochemical performance and structural integrity of the NCA electrode materials.

    In the time and frequency field, Allan variance is utilized in general to indicate frequency stability. Allan variance can not inhibit Flicker PM effectively because it′s defective algorithm. In order to reduce the impact of noise on frequency stability, frequency stability should be indicated by modified Allan variance. Modified Allan variance for inhibition mechanism of Flicker PM is analyzed. Through the satellite commonview method, the comparative data of hydrogen clock and UTC(NIM) are evaluated. Then, the noise model is used to demonstrate the results of evaluation. The effectiveness of the modified Allen variance against Flicker PM inhibition is verified.

    In order to meet the demand for propulsion systems of micronano spacecraft such as the cubic satellite, the first needletype miniature gallium field emission electric propulsion thruster in China was developed. The problem that gallium is difficult to fully wet the tungsten needle under vacuum environment was solved by increasing the wetting temperature. The thruster′s stable ignition was realized, and the thruster′s ignition characteristics under different wetting temperatures and different geometric parameters were tested. The relationship is obtained that the emission current increases as the wetting temperature increases, the pole spacing decreases, and the inner hole diameter of absorbing pole increases. The theoretical thrust under different emission currents is given by formula calculation.The electric field strength under different geometric parameters is obtained by simulation, and the reason why the geometric parameters affect the emission current is revealed.

    Inflatable and deployable space module is the most desired for future space stations and space structures. The outer shell of such inflatable module is made up of several layers for debris protection, seal and thermal control. In order to protect the module from the debris and make it easy to be packaged and deployed, the outer protection shields of such modules were designed to be made of polyurethane foam and some kinds of fabrics. This paper proposes a design of such flexible and inflatable protection shield based on the multishock structure. The parameters of such shields are determined by homemade Basalt fiber and aromatic polyamide fiber. Before test verification, the design parameters of such debris shield are determined by simulation based on multishock structure and such ballistic limit equation. And then High Velocity Impact (HVI) test program was conducted to verify that the design parameters can meet the design requirement of the inflatable and deployable structure.
