Chapter 1. Space-Based MA TT&C System and Technologies

Multiple Access (MA) service provided by Tracking and Data Relay Satellite System (TDRSS) is a space based MA TT&C and communication service using satellite relay. Spaced-based MA TT&C system is specialized in the implementation and application. In this paper the performance and technology development of S-band MA service provided by TDRSS is analyzed. As a feature of TDRSS SMA services, the major difference from that of conventional communication satellite is that its MA assignment has to be relayed and managed by ground station. Key technologies related to space based MA TT&C and communication are determined and their implementation solutions are proposed.

Chapter 2. The Investigation of a Novel Reentry Telemetry System

With the development of the missile experimental research, the measurement bandwidth of super-fast-signal demands more and more (expected up to 100 MHz) in the reentry telemetry. However, the ability of the current PCM-PPK reentry telemetry system is limited. Also the PCM-PPK system is a non-universal system and impedes the improving of the telemetry technology. Based on the analysis of various modulation systems, the PCM-FM modulation system is proposed as a novel reentry telemetry system. The principle prototype of PCM-FM reentry telemetry baseband equipment is successfully developed with the code rate range from 10 to 100 Mbit/s.

Chapter 3. Research on United Tracking Schemes Based on a New Information Frame Format

In a Tracking, Telemetry and Command (TT&C) system for the upper-stage of a launch vehicle, a mass amount of instant and dynamic telemetry information need to be transmitted to the ground station from the launch vehicle. Meanwhile, ranging accuracy is seriously affected because the energy of telemetry information is more than the ranging information. To meet requirements for transmission of different information on the downlink of launch vehicle upper-stage, a new information frame format based on isochronous service and insert service is proposed. Moreover, three united tracking schemes including direct switch, free oscillation switch and accumulation branch assisted switch are proposed. The performance of the three schemes is simulated with MATLAB. The result shows that all three schemes can implement the switch between different loops, but there exists a phase jump at 20 ms both in direct switch and free oscillation switch. Only the accumulation branch assisted switch can switch smoothly. Therefore, it is the best scheme. The research findings are of high significance for practical applications.

Based on the views of IT evolution stages, information integration issues, combined with TT&C system, this paper proposed a TT&C information integration management model and a corresponding application system, which both have three levels, a base-level with automation as subject, a middle-level with process management as subject and a high-level with intelligence as subject. Comprehensive discussion shows that the information integration stage in IT evolution is the key development stage for TT&C system. To improve information integration efficiency and ability, the three-layer model is an instructive model for practical application.

Chapter 11. TT&C System Design Based on Protocols and Master–Slave Structure

The current TT&C System is characterized by monotonous in application layer protocol and simple in structure, which results problems in heavy workload in Space Mission preparation, complicated system joint test, and inflexible of facility adaptability.

Chapter 12. Study on the Application of LT Code Technology in Deep Space Communications

Deep space communications have such characteristics as long delay, high code error rate and easily broken links, etc. Easily broken links may lead to a certain degree of random flash-break of TT&C signals, which in turn will result in the unrecoverable loss of data. Luby Transform (LT) code (Luby in Proceedings of the 43rd Annual IEEE Symposium Foundations of Computer Science (FOCS), pp. 71–280 (2002)) technology is an excellent special data recovery technology for scattered data. It can solve the issue of data frame loss in deep space communications, and is very suitable for the reliable transmission of large volume of data, but it cannot improve the code error performance of transmission. Therefore considering the issues such as high code error rate and easily lost data in deep space communications, the paper studied and implemented the concatenation of LT code and LDPC/TPC code, expected to provide more reliable solution for the acquisition of deep space communications data.

Chapter 13. Application of Multicarrier 2-Dimension Spread Spectrum in Aerospace TT&C

Application of multicarrier 2-dimension spread spectrum (MC-2D-SS) is proposed in the field of aerospace TT&C systems to enhance their resistance to interference during mission operations. In principle, MC-2D-SS is the combination of direct sequence spread spectrum (DS-SS) and multicarrier CDMA (MC-CDMA). Therefore, it has both the characteristics of signal hiding of DS-SS and anti-inter-symbol interference (ISI) and anti-interference of MC-CDMA. A design of transmitter and receiver using MC-2D-SS is given for aerospace TT&C. Discussion is given to key technical issues of design, e.g. synchronization, ranging, anti interference and channel estimation, and a rough synchronization scheme is recommended. As a result, the TT&C system not only fully meets mission operation requirements, but also has high spread spectrum gain, strong anti-interference performance, ISI resistance capability and adaptive transmission characteristics.

The method of amending the angle error of optical and pulse radar is applied to the angle data correction of velocity-measurement radar. So a method of amending error superposition of many complicated components is proposed, and the conventional method of amending angle error is improved. By eliminating the error item in measured angle data of the velocity-measurement radar, the accuracy of measured angle is improved and the measured angle data can be fully used in computing the trajectory. When the angles are amended, the steady and credible trajectory parameters can be computed. Thus, the trajectory measuring accuracy is improved.

Chapter 19. Analysis of Feed Defocus’s Effects on a Ka-Band Parabolic Antenna

The parabolic reflectors of deep space antennas are influenced by many facts, such as fabrication error, gravity and thermal deformation, which induce the feed deviating from the focal point of the paraboloid. The feed defocus would introduce phase errors over the paraboloidal dish, and degrade the antenna performance.

Chapter 22. An Acquisition Algorithm for DS/FH TT&C Signal Using Subband-Accumulation Method

The problem of fast acquisition of Direct Sequence/Frequency Hopping (DS/FH) spread spectrum signal is studied. With the existence of ionospheric dispersion, the carrier phase continuity of a phase-coherent FH system is disrupted and the complexity of acquisition is drastically increased. By searching the Total Electron Count (TEC), i.e. the electron density, along the path length, the receiver is capable of compensating for the phase pattern of local replica FH signal and performing quasi-coherent acquisition. A new acquisition strategy named Band Division Accumulation is proposed. It is proved that the strategy can broaden the TEC search period and thus reduce search complexity. The connection between the number of sub-bands and energy loss is analyzed. The accumulation loss of acquisition can be adjusted by altering the number of sub-bands, providing flexibility to design of receivers.

Then, the deduction results are analyzed and concluded that ship-swaying feed-forward data can be validly produced without target distance values provided.

Chapter 27. Dim and Weak Target Detection Technology Based on Multi-Characteristic Fusion

As the signal of small weak target is weak, its characteristic information is prone to weakening and loss and is difficult to maintain stability. In this paper, a self-learning mechanism is built using continuous signal correlative characteristics. The method is based on K-L transform fusion technology and D-S theory of decision-making. Meanwhile, the fusion technology of “fusion after the first decision-making” and “decision-making after first fusion” organic integration is developed. To verify the detection capability of this technology for small dim targets, a new type of tracking processor is developed. It processes more than one hundred groups of raw image data divided into two groups. The image data is taken by a space target surveillance telescope. Experimental results show that dim targets can be detected and tracked stably and reliably using this technology. Also provided with a complex background suppression and anti-jamming capability, a target can be detected stably and reliably when its SNR is about 1.2.

Chapter 29. Research on Multi-Path QoS Routing Strategy for the Satellite Network

The satellite network, together with the traditional ground network, constitutes the Space–Ground Interconnection Network (SGIN), which can provide global coverage for communications and become an important developing trend of the next generation network. Currently, there exist lots of routing algorithms that are based on the characteristics of satellite networks. However, most of them focus on a single transmission performance index while ignoring others. A multi-path parallel routing strategy for the satellite network based on Quality of Service (QoS) requirements and information of inter satellite links (ISLs) is proposed. Firstly, the strategy utilizes the historical and near-real-time information of the ISLs to conduct off-line routing computing on the ground. After that, real-time information of the ISLs and QoS requirements for data communications will be reconsidered on board to adjust the pre-computed routing scheme. Finally, data transmission will be allowed to take place on several routes between the source and the destination in parallel. This strategy not only ensures high arrival rate and low latency of data transmissions, but also fully utilizes link resources of the satellite network and balances the workloads among ISLs efficiently.

Chapter 30. Constant Modulus Blind Equalization Analysis for High Speed Implementation

Constant modulus equalization algorithm (CMA) is widely used for mitigating inter-symbol interference (ISI) in various communication systems, for its robustness and low computational complexity. In practice, signed error CMA may be adopted to simplify the implementation. However, the simplification severely degrades its steady state performance. In this paper, a detailed analysis is taken to compare the mentioned two algorithms in Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) implementation. Furthermore, a novel error function is proposed for the high speed implementation consideration. Numerical simulation demonstrates that the proposed algorithm behaves much better than the reference with similar computational complexity, which makes the proposed algorithm more suitable for the area of high speed applications.

This paper aims to provide a top-level design on the QoS strategy and commits suggestions on the development of the QoS technologies in next generation space mission IP networks. With respect to the three potential congestion causes, i.e., excessive traffic access, unbalanced resource, and transmission mechanism, corresponding countermeasures are proposed. The QoS strategy of the space mission IP network is a systematic solution whose first role is to avoid congestion and guarantee the transmission with high priority when congestion occurs. The architecture of the QoS strategy of the space mission IP network can be summarized as a congestion avoidance mechanism based on traffic management, traffic output control, as well as additional service mechanisms. The congestion avoidance mechanism includes a set of strategies such as traffic policing, traffic shaping, and port rate limitation. The differential service mechanism includes a set of strategies such as service classification, priority marking, priority trust, and priority queue dispatch. With these strategies implemented, the end-to-end congestion management and QoS guarantee is achieved in the space mission IP network.

Chapter 35. Impact Analysis of the Leap Second to the Computer System in Beijing Aerospace Control Center

It analyzes the impact of the leap second at 07:59:60 July 1, 2012 to the timing system and applications in Beijing Aerospace Control Center (BACC), and proposes a solution for the leap second adjustment. First it introduces the source of the leap second. Next it articulates the timing system device, timing system clients, timing system topology, as well as their working mechanism. Then it describes the experiments on the leap second adjustment, presents the test contents, procedures, and results under the automatic and manual adjustment modes. It also presents the test results of the leap second adjustment under the NTP protocol. The test results indicate that the timing system devices work well under both automatic and manual adjustment modes, and the clients can synchronize with the timing system device in 4 s. When the adjustment is executed on the timing system device, the clients can synchronize with the timing system device after a pause of one second at the synchronization point. As for the NTP conditions, the clients can not synchronize within 5 min, and can synchronize immediately if the clients are rebooted. The leap second will make a big impact on the time-sensitive systems such as the TT&C devices and applications. It suggest that the leap second adjustment and synchronization need to be executed outside the critical command and control procedures, and a thorough implementation plan needs to be made. The most important point is that the synchronization must be after a delay of 4 s in the leap second adjustment.

Chapter 36. The Exploration and Practice of Itinerant Testing for TT&C Device Software at the Launch Range

In view of the latent software faults and unsteadiness of telemetric tracking and command (TT&C) device software at the Launch Range, Software Itinerant Testing (SIT) is brought forward. Software faults are attributed to software manufacturer’s lack of necessary ability and shortage of process specification. Comparison of SIT and software project testing shows that SIT is a convenient activity that can be taken. The first time that SIT worked at launch range took about 8 weeks and found 52 faults. The result shows that TT&C device software is under unreliable state and with low robustness. SIT is an effective measure to solve TT&C Device software faults and improve the robustness and reliability of TT&C device software.

Chapter 38. Single-Station Orbit Determination with Astrometric Positioning and SLR Techniques

The principle of single-station orbit determination using astrometric positioning and SLR techniques is to add a laser ranging unit onto the optoelectronic telescope system, so as to conduct laser ranging and astrometric positioning angle measurement at the same time. By melting and processing all the data together, the new technique will achieve single-station orbit determination of the objects. In this paper, the actual measurement data of satellite Ajisai is analyzed for its single-station single-lap and multi-lap orbit determination. However, due to the limited amount of actual measurement data, objects of three types of orbit altitude have to be simulated and the single-station orbit determination analysis is just based on them in order to make the conclusion more universal. After studying the actual and simulated data, it turns out that for single-station single-lap orbit determination, the ranging measurement data (measurement duration longer than 4 min) will improve the orbit determination accuracy from several kilometers to tens of meters and the 24-h prediction accuracy from thousands of kilometers to several kilometers.

Chapter 39. On Nominal Formation Flying Orbit with a Small Solar System Body

It is very difficult for an explorer to orbit a low-mass and irregularly shaped small body in the solar system. In this case, formation flying with the small body is a workable solution. This paper discusses two strategies of formation flying based on two different dynamic models. The orbit resulted from the C–W equation and the halo orbit around libration point L1 in the Circular Restricted Three-body Problem (CRTBP) are considered as nominal orbit respectively. Numerical simulation indicates the effect of the magnitude of μ on the stability and other features of the halo orbits, where μ is a parameter weighing the gravity of the small body. The result shows that the CRTBP is more fuel-saving and therefore a more appropriate dynamic model for solving the formation flying problem. This paper also works out a dynamic model involving solar radiation pressure. Simulation result shows that, in this condition, the C–W equation has no significant advantage.

Chapter 40. On Orbit Control Utilizing Solar Sails Around Asteroids

The interest of exploring asteroids has been growing over these years due to their primordial origins and possible economic benefits. The gravities of the asteroids are mostly very small and irregular, so it is necessary to study the orbits around them with special treatment. In this paper, two kinds of nominal orbits for probes are firstly proposed. One kind is around the collinear libration points of the restricted three-body problem formed with the Sun, the asteroid and the probe. The other kind is the formation flying orbits around the asteroid. Due to the inevitable existence of errors in practice, station keeping of these two kinds of nominal orbits is necessary. Solar sail propulsion is used in this paper. Two control techniques including varying the solar sail area and varying the solar sail pitch and yaw angles are considered. The linear optimal feedback control law is used. Numerical simulations are made to both kinds of nominal orbits. The results show that the controlled orbits converge to the vicinity of the nominal orbits rapidly. The technique of varying the solar sail pitch and yaw angles is better than varying the solar sail area.

Chapter 41. Orbit Determination of Lunar Probe Brake Course Based on Compensation to Dynamic Parameters

During orbital maneuver process, the probe relays on propulsion system to generate thrust acceleration, which tunes attitude and orbit. The complicated course of propulsion makes thrust hard to be modeled. The difficulty of precisely modeling thrust acceleration mainly includes two aspects: firstly, the begin-and-final epochs of attitude control and orbital control are not easy to determine; secondly, the acceleration of attitude control and orbital control are not easy to model accurately. It focuses on modeling and building nearly real-time filter to estimate dynamic parameters to compensate the uncertainty of the force model during the maneuver process. In the first section, the background of modeling thrust acceleration was introduced. In

Sect. 41.2

, the linear attitude control acceleration and the average orbital control acceleration model were used to describe the accelerating motion. In

Sect. 41.3

, an Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) was developed for the orbit determination with thrust involved, also the variation equation about state vector with dynamic parameters were put forward for the linearization of the non-linear dynamic system. In

Sect. 41.4

, the third lunar orbital brake of Chang’E-1 was processed to ascertain that the algorithm developed here can estimate the acceleration precisely during the continuous thrust maneuver process. EKF Results show that compared with the precise post-results, the error is 216 m in semi-major axis and 0.001 in eccentricity.

Chapter 42. A Modified IAE Algorithm for GNSS and IMU Integration

Innovation-based adaptive estimation (IAE), which is one of the proved Adaptive Kalman Filter (AKF) algorithms, can improve the accuracy of GNSS/IMU combined navigation system based on the condition that the received GNSS measurements are independently accurate enough. However, IAE is more likely to be subjected to bias and non-convergence with degraded measurements accuracy due to GNSS signal outage or low-cost receiver. In order to maintain the performance of integrated GNSS/IMU system with the coexistence of less accurate measurements, a modified IAE algorithm is proposed in this paper. The algorithm, named “IAE with measurements discarding strategy” (IAE-D), monitors the quality of the estimations and measurements in real-time, and discards the measurements when the estimations are accurate enough or the measurements are less qualified. Field test was carried out. Noise was imported to simulate different levels of measurements deterioration. Performance comparison between Extended Kalman Filter (EKF), IAE and IAE-D has been executed with real data. The results demonstrate that IAE-D has magnificent advantage over EKF and IAE in regard to stability and accuracy when the power level of measurements interference is relatively high.
