As the boundary of the universe which is explored by human expanded, antenna used in deep space exploration (DSE) could become too large to carry and deploy, miniature deep space probe based antenna arrays (MDSPBAA) provide a novel solution for the problem. This kind of antenna array may lower the difficulty of sending antenna to the area where is tend to be detected and may also monitor cost effectively in the work of deep space detect. However, turbulence and positional errors provide a challenging operational environment when it comes to the implementation of these systems. Turbulence will deteriorate SLL badly. In some cases, the level could be changed by almost 10 dB. Therefore, a SLL control algorithm is presented, which could well compensate the SLL which is caused by positional error.
