Abstract
Before the star sensor completes the attitude measurement task with the launch of the spacecraft, it must be calibrated on the ground. In order to meet the requirements of high precision star sensor calibration, according to some specific problems of optical structure of conventional ground calibration equipment in response to large aperture, long focal length and wide spectrum requirements, an off-axis collimator was designed as a collimating optical system, and the image quality was evaluated, and mechanical structure of the off-axis collimator was also designed in detail. Control technology of star brightness was researched and analyzed, and a set of lighting control system is designed. Analysis and test results show that a variety of seven consecutive magnitudes can be simulated by the lighting control system, and the simulated error between neighboring magnitudes is less than 8‰, to meet the current high precision star sensor calibration technical requirements.
