Paper Abstract

Acquiring optical images of space objects is one of the most important goals of space-based optical surveillance systems. However, it's actually difficult to obtain enough high resolution optical images for space object recognition, attitude measurement and situational awareness. To solve this problem, the imaging model of space-based optical camera and the imaging characteristics of space objects are analyzed in this paper, and a novel method of image simulation is proposed. The high resolution images of space objects simulated by our method are visually similar to the actual imaging results and may provide data support for further research on space technology.
