Paper Abstract

The method to get high-orbit satellite basic information such as geometry and material characteristic, is an important goal in the field of space posture apperception. In this paper, we calculate the satellite magnitude by comparing the output value of camera’s CCD between the known fixed star and the satellite. We select certain reference stars to calculate the luminance value of a certain object on the acquired image using a background-removing method. We make time-domain analysis of the measurement data, and get the statistic result. With the knowledge of the theory brightness of the target, we estimate the geometric characteristics of the target. We have got a serious of the images of a certain satellite on large telescope. The experimental results demonstrate that, the accuracy of the measured magnitude is better than 0.12Mv, and the estimation error of the target reflection surface size is less than 15%.
