Radar reconnaissance of potentially hazardous asteroids and comets
Groundbased radar is uniquely able to reduce uncertainty in trajectories and physical properties of near-earth objects. Radar can prevent the loss of a newly discovered object caused by the normal
Asteroid Characteristics by Radar
The techniques of radar offer a potentially powerful tool for the study of planetoids. It is a new approach, having been applied to extraterrestrial targets only recently in the history of
Distribution of the surface radio brightness of asteroid Golevka constructed from the radar data
A method for construction of a 2D radio image of an asteroid from the radar data obtained with the use of a continuous monochromatic signal has been tested. The method is based on the inverse focused
Estimation of statistical geometrical properties of the surface of asteroids from simulations
In order to evaluate the scientific feedback of a spaceborne radar in the frame of future space missions towards the asteroids, we present a method able to calculate mono-dimensional or
The rings of Saturn
This paper reviews observations of the rings of Saturn at visual, infrared, and radio wave-lengths. Critical assessments are made of attempts to derive the physical characteristics of the rings from
