Theoretical analysis and numerical solution of laser pulse transformation for satellite laser ranging
The processes of the pulse transformation in satellite laser ranging (SLR) are analyzed, the analytical expressions of the transformation are deduced, and the effects of the transformation on Center-of-Mass corrections of satellite and ranging precision are discussed. The numerical solution of the transformation and its effects are also given. The results reveal the rules of pulse transformation affected by different kinds of factors. These are significant for designing the SLR system with millimeter accuracy.
