Fu Wei five satellite back to the first batch of photos out of focus? Taiwan Science and Technology Department response

According to Taiwan’s “Central News Agency” reported that for the media reported that Taiwan’s “Fu Wei V” satellite back to the first batch of photos out of fear, fear of failure, the Taiwan authorities science and technology sector Today said that the current image capture, compression are in line with expectations, but the focus system is not as expected, the initial analysis, may be telemetry camera focal length offset. For the media reported that the first batch of photographs returned by Fu Wei V satellites was completely out of focus, fear of disability, the Taiwan authorities science and technology department held a press conference on the 19th to explain.

cost up to NT $ 5.6 billion, is also the first by the Taiwan region completely independent research and development of optical telemetry satellite “Fu Wei five” launched in August success. However, according to Taiwan’s “Liberty Times” reported that “Fu Wei V” on September 7 back the first batch of telemetry images are blurred, remote calibration is still no improvement, satellite camera function fear “disabled.”

Taiwan authorities science and technology sector said that Fuwei five since August 25 after the launch, that is, by the “National Research Institute” space center for the functional testing, step by step to explore the completion of the homemade instrument testing, And on September 8 to open the telemetry camera to the ground to take pictures, the image successfully returned to the ground, by the space center team image processing.

The technology department pointed out that the current image capture, compression are designed, but the focus system is not as expected, according to preliminary analysis, may be telemetry camera focal length offset. Is currently on the telemetry imager system tuning focus, the space center is also synchronized in the ground to do the physical simulation test, try to improve the image quality of the remote control.

For the media reports, ‘Space Center’ before the launch of satellites in Taiwan, mining sites in the remote shooting test CMOS, then found that there are problems with the photo; another said that the space center in the launch of the satellite before the sparse In the CMOS calibration, which led to the accident. “Technology departments stressed that the actual situation is not consistent.

Science and Technology Department explained, Fu Wei V back to the image with stripes, because each chip is caused by different sensors, the use of image processing technology software can be appropriate to compensate for correction, and will not affect the image clarity. “Space Center” before the launch of the relevant compensation to master the way, there is no “neglect of the CMOS calibration” situation.
