Paper Abstract

Dome A has been considered as one of the best observation sites on the earth. The First AST3(three Antarctic Survey Telescopes) is on its way to Dome A by the 28th Chinese National Antarctic research expedition. It will be the largest Optic telescope in Dome A after assembling and testing in this austral summer. Firstly, this paper reports the method of collecting the vibration and shock data from ShangHai to Dome A and analyses the data. Secondly, the package cushioning design of the first AST3 is introduced in this paper according to the vibration and shock data. Finally, the paper introduces the result of the dynamics analysis of the design and a test was done to verify the performance of the package cushioning design. The dynamics analysis and the test indicate that the package cushioning design can meet the demand of the Antarctic inland transportation.
