Paper Abstract

The near space aircraft is the pivot and relay connecting the outer space and the earth, the important supplement to the space platform (orbital satellite) and the aviation platform (airplane) .It has the remarkable superiority at aspects of covered field ,distinguishability, absorptivity and emissivity ,economic costs ,viability and quick and lasting response ability(the lasting overall covering ability of special position), therefore, occupies an important strategic position in the national security defense system. With the severe condition of space attack-defense and information countmeasure technique, this status becomes more prominent. However, because the near space airship has complex environmental changes during the rise, decline ,point and cruise, the conventional sensors can not satisfy the requirement. The key is how to accurately measure and control the working status (temperature pressure humidity) of the near space airship. MEMS which has characters of the small size, light weight, low power consumption, stable performance, high integration, little delay response time attracted widespread attention.
