  8. High Accuracy, Automated Satellite Surveillance Network

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Oceanit has successfully shown in Phase I that highly accurate (sub-arcsecond) observations are obtainable utilizing a relatively low-cost COTS system. These highly accurate angular observations can be introduced into the orbit determination process as asupplement to high-quality range data. These improved angular observations help resolve the geometric ambiguity of range-only orbit determinatio ...
