Requirements for observation scenarios to maintain a catalogue of space debris objects in geosynchronous region

Thomas Schildknecht, A. Hinze & H. Fiedler
Optical observations for space debris in the geosynchronous region have been performed for many years. During this time, observation strategies, processing tech- niques and cataloguing approaches were successfully developed. The importance of protecting this orbital region from space debris requires continuous surveying and monitoring in order to support collision avoidance operations. Further observations of the objects, providing information for orbit improvement calculations, are helping to maintain high accuracy ephemeris of the catalogued objects. This paper...
