optical observation of low-orbiting space objects
The task of monitoring low orbiting space objects cannot be solved by a majority of the classical astronomical observatories because of the limitations of the speed of tracking satellites and some other reasons. Characteristic properties of the developed complex is mobility, small size and easy to use, upgradable components. In this work methods and algorithms of monitoring low orbiting space objects are studied at the test mockup of the complex.
In this article considers the following algorithms used in complex:
Algorithm of observation scheduling
Algorithms for image filtration
Stars identification algorithms
Algorithms for trajectory estimation
In this paper performed experimental testing of methodology and algorithms on the prototype of created complex. Performed a cross-cutting check of all phases of the observations of cosmic objects, from planning sessions to obtain estimates of six-orbit parameters.
