    In order to meet the requirement of high accuracy control for satellites in space moving target pointing missions, the control method of the twolayer attitude system by the spacecraft base and fine steer mirror (FSM) are considered. The high accuracy pointing control method for space moving targets is presented. First, the position information of tracking satellite and target satellite was obtained based on the ClohessyWiltshire equation of the nearcircular orbit. Then, the multiple information fusion extended Kalman filter was adopted to estimate tracking satellite attitude. The relative attitude between tracking satellite optical axis and target satellite was calculated in real time so as to obtain the azimuth and elevation angle required for tracking and pointing control. Finally, fast and high accuracy pointing to the target satellite was realized through spacecraft base firstlayer attitude control and payload optical axis secondlayer pointing control based on FSM. Simulation results show that the proposed method can keep dynamic pointing error less than 072″. The method presented can realize high accuracy tracking and pointing control of space target and can provide technical support for space missions such as laser communication.

    To improve the radiation heat flux in the droplet layer of liquid droplet radiator, a 3D unsteady radiation heat transfer model of the rectangular droplet radiator was established. The radiation heat transfer process of droplet layer was simulated by FLUENT. The influence and sensitivity of droplet distribution characteristics, initial droplet temperature, flow rate, droplet spacing, diameter, droplet length and mass flow rate on the radiation heat flux of droplet layer were analyzed numerically. A new droplet layer structure,hollow droplet layer,was proposed. Results show that apart from flight time and mass flow rate, droplet spacing and initial temperature have great influence on the heat transfer power of the droplet layer of radiator. Under the condition that the number of droplet layers in the thickness direction is 100 and the mass flow rate is 12 kg/s, the design of hollow droplet layer can increase the heat flux per unit mass by 23 times.

    CHEN Shujian, LI Zhi, HU Min, ZHANG Yasheng
    2020, 40 (2):  17.  doi: 10.16708/j.cnki.1000-758X.2020.0015
    Abstract ( 76 )   PDF (8393KB) ( 40 )   Save
    The problem of response time in multisatellite imaging planning for emergency tasks was investigated. To avoid the influence of preferentially planning of emergency tasks on total task revenue, a multisatellite imaging planning method was proposed, with which the response time of emergency tasks was optimized and the total task revenue was considered. Firstly, according to the characteristics of multisatellite imaging planning which considers both emergency and routine tasks, a constraint satisfaction model for twolevel target optimization was established. Secondly, the model solving process was divided into two parts,i.e., selection of time window and dynamic planning on single orbit. The selection of time window was optimized based on adaptive immune algorithm, and the forward dynamic planning algorithm was designed to determine the optimal path of satellite on single orbit. Finally, the designed algorithm was tested and compared with other algorithms. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed method can ensure the shortest response time of emergency tasks and get relatively high total task revenue in largescale problem of multisatellite imaging planning.

    BEN Liyan, ZHANG Rui, XIE Xianghua
    2020, 40 (2):  29.  doi: 10.16708/j.cnki.1000-758X.2020.0016
    Abstract ( 48 )   PDF (1220KB) ( 35 )   Save
    A new guidance algorithm for midcorrection of translunar trajectory was presented. The algorithm was divided into two steps, i.e.,designing the initial solution and searching for the exact solution. First, the initial solution was generated using the pseudostate theory, and the Vinti prediction was adopted to improve the accuracy of the initial solution by eliminating the earth oblateness effect. Then, while searching for the exact solution, the state transition matrix was calculated by an analytical method based on the pseudostate theory. Because the initial solution with high accuracy is used, the difficulty of finding the solution for midcorrection of translunar trajectory is greatly reduced. Moreover, the calculation of the state transition matrix by using traditional numerical methods is omitted. Numerical simulations indicate that the algorithm is of high efficiency.

    Abstract ( 73 )   PDF (3882KB) ( 31 )   Save
    Aiming at the problem that the classical mechanizations of inertial navigation system in polar region are unable to confirm its position and heading, a new polar navigation scheme based on frozen geography frame was proposed, which is suitable for strapdown inertial navigation system. This scheme uses threeaxis position instead of longitude, latitude and altitude for navigation in polar region. This algorithm has no singularity in navigation calculation. The mechanizations under the frozen geography frame were given. The parameter transformations from a frozen geography frame to geography frame for position, velocity and attitude were deduced. The simulation and analysis results show that this method can solve the problem that the north benchmark is invalid, and that the navigation parameters are continuous and have no theoretical errors. The mechanizations under the frozen geography frame can meet the requirement of  transpolar aircraft.

    2020, 40 (2):  42.  doi: 10.16708/j.cnki.1000-758X.2020.0018

    The orbit injection of allelectric propulsion satellite is a typical low thrust multirevolution orbit optimal problem. Due to the small acceleration and the large number of revolutions, it is difficult to solve the optimal theoretical solution. In order to solve this problem, the indirect method model of allelectric propulsion satellite orbit optimization was established by using the optimal control theory, and the problem of the orbital optimization was transformed into the twopoint boundary value problem which can be solved by guessing the initial costate variable. A large thrust problem was solved by combining the evolutionary algorithm and the sequential quadratic programming. With the help of homotopic approach, the small thrust problem was solved by gradually reducing the thrust. The simulation shows that the thrust homotopic method can effectively solve the trajectory optimal of geostationary allelectric propulsion satellites with up to hundreds of revolutions by dozens of thrust reductions.

    Pryoshock environment on the spacecraft is complex, the impact load is transient and highly nonlinear, which makes the pyroshock response difficult to be predicted. Quality characteristics of equipment distributing on satellite boards become the key factor of pyroshock transmission. According to the mechanism of pyroshock transmission, the simplified finite element method (FEM) models of satellite boards and equipment were built and the responses on the satellite boards were calculated. Comparing the results with test data, the error was controlled under ±35dB which confirmed the rationality of the FEM modeling. The method of simulation provides a reference for the prediction of pyroshock response and the design of satellite layout.

    A timecalibration method with controllable second interrupt interval for onboard computers
    ZHANG Cuitao, WANG Luyuan, GUO Jian, HE Xiongwen
    2020, 40 (2):  76.  doi: 10.16708/j.cnki.1000-758X.2020.0023
    Abstract ( 84 )   PDF (997KB) ( 70 )   Save
    The traditional onboard computer time maintenance is mainly implemented by software. In order to avoid the second interrupt interval being too small or too large during the time calibration process, the software needs to perform multiple operations on the external timer Intel 82C54 chip through complicated logic and algorithms. It is very likely to make mistakes, and it takes a lot of CPU machine cycles. With the increasing tasks for spacecraft intelligent processing in the future, the CPU machine cycle becomes more and more scarce. In order to free the CPU from the cumbersome time calibration operation, a timecalibration method with controllable second interrupt interval based on FPGA was proposed. The satellite time timer was designed with the FPGA logic circuit. And the trigger condition of timecalibration was designed by using the constraint condition of second interrupt interval. When the trigger condition of timecalibration is met, the FPGA logic circuit automatically executes the timecalibration operation, which solves the problem of too large or too small second interrupt intervals during the timecalibration process, and saves a lot of CPU machine cycles. The timecalibration method proposed has been applied on several onboard computers, and has achieved the expected goal.
