Space debris is a growing hazard to space users. Debris trajectories must be accurately predicted to maintain safe space access. Accurate predictions are premised on precise knowledge of the current trajectory, and a detailed understanding of disturbances that affect the future trajectory. Both tasks are facilitated by accurate and timely tracking of debris. It is possible to track space debris using radar and telescopes, yet both are expensive and result in unacceptable trajectory projections… CONTINUE READING
