For efficient use of metal oxides, such as MnO(2) and RuO(2), in pseudocapacitors and other electrochemical applications, the poor conductivity of the metal oxide is a major problem. To tackle the problem, we have designed a ternary nanocomposite film composed of metal oxide (MnO(2)), carbon nanotube (CNT), and conducting polymer (CP). Each component in the(More)
In this paper, we investigate a method for simultaneously scheduling multiple space surveillance sensors that has the potential to exploit measurement level sensor fusion to improve orbital state estimation accuracy. State error covariance information is used to predict the influence independent and combined measurements will have on estimation accuracy(More)
The art and science of space situational awareness (SSA) has been practised and developed from the time of Sputnik. However, recent developments, such as the accelerating pace of satellite launch, the proliferation of launch capable agencies, both commercial and sovereign, and recent well-publicised collisions involving man-made space objects, has further(More)
1 As a result of continual space activity since the 1950s, there are now a large number of man-made Resident Space Objects (RSOs) orbiting the Earth. Because of the large number of items and their relative speeds, the possibility of destructive collisions involving important space assets is now of significant concern to users and operators of space-borne(More)
We present practical, experimental results for a system, driven by a particle filter, that dynamically steers a space surveillance sensor to track and search for resident space objects. In contrast to traditional Kalman-filter-based trackers, this system can exploit scheduled observations where the target is not found within the field of view. Furthermore,(More)
