Satellite simulated system is a very important sub system of satellite payload ground comprehensive testing system which tests the satellite payload’s order and telemetering before delivering the payload to satellite. For all kinds of satellite simulated system, a new implementation which used an improved Finite State Machine (FSM) model can make the whole system modules clear, reduce the coupling between modules, improve the modules’ reusability, enhance productivity, and make the research and development of the whole system easier. The engineering applications’ experimental results show that the implementation of an improved FSM model can make the satellite simulated system stable and reliable.
With excellent temporal resolution ranging from nanosecond to sub-picoseconds, a streak camera is widely utilized in measuring ultrafast light phenomena, such as detecting synchrotron radiation, examining inertial confinement fusion target, and making measurements of laser-induced discharge. In combination with appropriate optics or spectroscope, the streak camera delivers intensity vs. position (or wavelength) information on the ultrafast process. The current streak camera is based on a sweep electric pulse and an image converting tube with a wavelength-sensitive photocathode ranging from the x-ray to near infrared region. This kind of streak camera is comparatively costly and complex. This paper describes the design and performance of a new-style streak camera based on an electro-optic crystal with large electro-optic coefficient. Crystal streak camera accomplishes the goal of time resolution by direct photon beam deflection using the electro-optic effect which can replace the current streak camera from the visible to near infrared region. After computer-aided simulation, we design a crystal streak camera which has the potential of time resolution between 1ns and 10ns.Some further improvements in sweep electric circuits, a crystal with a larger electro-optic coefficient, for example LN (γ33=33.6×10-12m/v) and the optimal optic system may lead to better time resolution less than 1ns.
