Multi-channel optical radiation frequency stabilization system in geoplositioning systems of mine surveying and geodetic equipment

In this paper the features of the modernization of the frequency reference device, potentially suitable for applying the design breakdown and tracking the position of equipment during mountain and landscape marking of mining and quarry developments have been discussed. The possibilities of operation of new systems in conjunction with the use of satellite geopositioning systems, tracking the position and movement of mining facilities are presented. The basic principles of the operation of the reference optical frequency source of the optical frequency reference scheme are presented also. The created feedback system, potentially applicable in signal processing receivers, is described. The feature of this system is the presence of an optical selective element, which makes it possible to simultaneously stabilize several sources of laser radiation through one high-Q optical cavity, which, in turn, makes it possible to reduce the weight and size of the terminal devices, and also simplifies the adjustment of these devices in the field. The new circuit for feedback auto-recovery system is proposed. Due to this property the system allows extended or potentially infinite, relative to correction signals, operation. The comparison of optical sources of the frequency reference with different weight and size characteristics is made. The obtained optical beats between large systems and the proposed compact multichannel system have been analyzed also.

Keywords: terrain marking, topography, geopositioning, mountain landscape, frequency reference, satellite geodesy.
