Due to the increasing threat of space debris to active satellites, space object catalogs must be build up and maintained. Accurate and up-to-date catalog data allow the prediction of close conjunctions and consecutively the planning of avoidance maneuvers. Objects in lower altitudes are typically observed with radars. Objects in higher orbits, such as the geostationary one, are observed with optical telescopes due to the limiting range capabilities of radars. The geostationary orbit is… CONTINUE READING
