Abstract
A prototype of correlation tracker (CT) designed for the Space Solar Telescope (SST) has been realized in National Astronomical Observatories of CAS. We designed a special optical system for the development and test of the CT system. We estimate the image motion by cross-correlation method via FFT and take full advantage of the real-valued FFT to reduce the amount of calculation. For a possible realization of the processing unit used in space, we use a "1 bit correlation" method, which will greatly simplify the hardware implementation of FFT. A resolution of 0.01" has been obtained corresponding to the object space of the telescope, with the -3dB closed-loop error cutoff frequency of 38Hz along x axis and 40Hz along y-axis achieved.
