Adaptive optics for satellite imaging and space debris ranging

Abstract

Earth’s space environment is becoming crowded and at risk of a Kessler syndrome[1], and will require careful management for the future. Modern low noise high speed detectors allow for wavefront sensing and adaptive optics (AO) in extreme circumstances such as imaging small orbiting bodies in Low Earth Orbit (LEO). The Research School of Astronomy and… (More)
