Abstract
In order to detect dangerous space non-cooperative targets, we have researched the technology of single photon laser detection. A single photon detection model which includes relative radial velocity between space-based detector and target was proposed, as well as, we analyzed the detection method of non-cooperative targets on a space-based plat-form. The results of simulations show that single photon laser detection can effectively detect the target of the distance 160 km and velocity 5 km/s under the load requirements of the space-based platform, its ranging accuracy could be improved 2~3 orders of magnitude compared with world ground-based traditional detection technology for space non-cooperative targets , and it can effectively reduce the collision probability of spacecraft
