Using Optical Interferometry for GEO satellites imaging: an update

Abstract

We describe multi-baseline observations of a geostationary satellite using the Navy Precision Optical Interferometer (NPOI) during the glint season of March 2015. We succeeded in detecting DirecTV-7S with an interferometer baseline length of 8.8 m on two nights, with a brief simultaneous detection at 9.8 m baseline length on the second night. These baseline… (More)
