In order to meet both optical performance and structural stiffness requirements of the aerospace Cassegrain telescope, iso-static mount is used as the interface between the primary mirror and the main plate. This article describes the alignment and iso-static mount bonding technique of the primary mirror by assistance of CMM. The design and assembly of mechanical ground support equipment (MGSE) which reduces the deformation of primary mirror by the gravity effect is also presented. The primary mirror adjusting MGSE consists of X-Y linear translation stages, rotation stage and kinematic constrain platform which provides the function of decenter, orientation, tilt and height adjustment of the posture sequentially. After CMM measurement, the radius of curvature, conic constant, decenter and tilt, etc. will be calculated. According to these results, the posture of the mirror will be adjusted to reduce the tilt by the designed MGSE within 0.02 degrees and the distance deviation from the best fitted profile of mirror to main plate shall be less than 0.01 mm. After that, EC 2216 adhesive is used to bond mirror and iso-static mount. During iso-static mount bonding process, CMM is selected to monitor the relative position deviation of the iso-static mount until the adhesive completely cured. After that, the wave front sensors and strain gauges are used to monitor the strain variation while the iso-static mount mounted in the main plate with the screws by the torque wrench. This step is to prevent deformation of the mirror caused from force of the iso-static mount during the mounting process. In the end, the interferometer is used for the optical performance test with +1G and -1G to check the alignment and bonding technique is well or not.
We propose a system with image authentication and cross-recovery ability to protect a group of n given digital images. The system is a (r,n) threshold scheme (r is a prespecified threshold satisfying 2r
We propose a sharing method to progressively reveal a given important image in the recovery phase. In the encoding phase, the distributor utilizes the three frequency bands (low, middle, and high) of the given image to generate shadows according to three prespecified thresholds. In the recovery phase, the secret image cannot be revealed if the number of shadows a team collects is less than the lowest threshold. However, when the number of collected shadows reaches the prespecified low (or middle- or high) threshold, the team can reconstruct a low- (or middle- or high-) quality version of the secret image. In other words, the quality of the reconstructed image depends only on the number of shadows being received, rather than on which of the generated shadows are received. Each noise-like shadow is so small that it can be hidden in an ordinary image that is still several times smaller than the original image.
