Research of the Key Techniques of Monitoring On-Orbit Docking for BLRU


Article Preview

This assay analyzes the docking of BLRU for the SG-Ⅲ Laser Facility, where centering and collision issues are pointed out as the key technologies for BLRU docking monitoring. The centering technology mainly transforms the three-dimensional problem into two-dimensional one, adopting the characteristic of machine version capturing to analyze the position and posture of BLRU. The collision monitoring technology mainly takes advantage of the principle that power is generated in the collision during the process of assembly and calibration. Monitoring the forces from each direction, the degree of indirect response to the collision, returning feedback to the docking platform after measurement data is analyzed, and amending the docking trajectory of the BLRU in time can achieve the light collision docking during the full process of BLRU.
