Paper Abstract

The image motion in the focal plane of the Space Solar Telescope (SST) can be compensated essentially by means of a correlation tracker. The method is based on determining, in real time, the relative displacements between successive images ofgranulation, by means ofcorrelation techniques. This paper reports on a simulation system, which used to simulate the satellite attitude of the SST. An overview of the complete system including optical design, system analysis, etc. is shown together with preliminary results. Using this simulation system, we demonstrate the correlation tracker really work under the estimated satellite condition.
