Abstract:

The study is intended to develop the equipment requirements for a minimal system to be used to establish the scatterer configuration of satellites for space object identification. This report establishes some of the trade-off effects as the system configuration and its associated parameters are changed. Specific trade-off areas covered in this report include 1 System angular tracking requirements, 2 System range tracking requirements, 3 Optimum data smoothing procedures, 4 Optimum baseline length selection, 5 A survey of orbiting targets, 6 Baseline and site selection, 7 Calibration procedures, 8 Error analysis and performance estimates. The tradeoffs assume the use of the Signal Processing Test Facility in Floyd, New York for the master site. Author
