Abstract:

The parametric analysis of CdS and CdSe star detectors concentrates on functional relationships between detector performance and parameters such as materials properties, detector geometry, star image size and quality, total power of star light on the detector, star image transit rate, color temperature of the simulated star, and bias light. The parametric analysis was conducted to develop a better understanding of the detector performances as related to SPARS Space Precision Attitude Reference System and HAARS High Altitude Attitude Reference System requirements and, furthermore, to learn the entire operational ranges of CdS and CdSe star detector performances so that other related mission applications can benefit.
