Abstract:

This report results from a contract tasking Swedish Institute of Space Physics IRF as follows The contractor will investigate the use of high power large aperture radar for the categorization of meteorites. Tristatic measurements using the European Incoherent Scatter EISCAT radar network will be collected and analyzed. The goal of this research is to determine the optimum radar modes operating frequencies, and radiated power for detecting and tracking meteors.
