Rapid Characterization of Geosynchronous Space Debris with 5-color Near-IR Photometry

A.D. Block, Thomas Schildknecht, K. Rockowitz, H. Alyson Ford, V. Reddy & E. Pearce
The characterization of deep space debris has posed a significant challenge in SSA. To be most operationally effective, characterization must be performed quickly and under non-ideal operational conditions, generally using non-resolved techniques. The use of multi-color photometry and the resultant color indices in the near and short- wave IR offer the potential to rapidly discriminate between debris and intact space objects such as rocket bodies and satellites. Specifically, the color indices surrounding the near-IR Z...
