The Lincoln Near-Earth Asteroid Research (LINEAR) program has applied electro-optical technology developed for Air Force Space Surveillance applications to the problem of discovering nearEarth asteroids (NEAs) and comets. This application is natural due to the commonality between the surveillance of the sky for manmade satellites and the search for(More)
Surface Prior-Information Reflectance Estimation (SPIRE) algorithms estimate changes in spectral reflectance using imperfect prior spatial and spectral information. This paper combines spectral and spatial processing to estimate local changes in spectral reflectance between pairs of spectral images under spatially and spectrally varying multiplicative and(More)
From 1998-2013, MIT Lincoln Laboratory operated a highly successful near-Earth asteroid search program using two 1-m optical telescopes located at the MIT Lincoln Laboratory Experimental Test Site (ETS) in Socorro, N.M. In 2014, the Lincoln Near-Earth Asteroid Research (LINEAR) program successfully transitioned operations from the two 1-m telescopes to the(More)

In the late 1980s, scientists established that the impact of a large asteroid or comet on the edge of the Yucatan Peninsula caused the extinction of the dinosaurs [1]. The recent collision of the comet Shoemaker-Levy(More)
