Paper Abstract

The TDI-CCD Stereo Camera is the optical sensor on the Chang’E-2 (CE-2) satellite created for the Chinese Lunar Exploration Program. The camera was designed to acquire three-dimensional stereoscopic images of the lunar surface based upon three-line array photogrammetric theory. The primary objective of the camera is, (1) to obtain about 1-m pixel spatial resolution images of the preparative landing location from an ellipse orbit at an altitude of ~15km, and (2) to obtain about 7-m pixel spatial resolution global images of the Moon from a circular orbit at an altitude of ~100km. The focal plane of the camera is comprised of two TDI-CCDs. The control circuits of the camera are designed based on two SRAM-type FPGAs, XQR2V3000-4CG717. In this paper, a variable frequency control and multi-tap data readout technology for the TDI-CCD is presented, which is able to change the data processing capabilities according to the different orbit mode for the TDI-CCD stereo camera. By this way, the data rate of the camera is extremely reduced from 100Mbps to 25Mbps at high orbit mode, which is benefit to raise the reliability of the image transfer. The results of onboard flight validate that the proposed methodology is reasonable and reliable.
