15 May 2001 Mosaic array cameras for NEO and space debris: an update
Author Affiliations +
The recent interest in detecting asteroids and Reentrant Space Debris has developed a need for large field of view, high-resolution focal plane array cameras to provide for mapping and tracking of these objects. Ideally, a number of these cameras would be used around the world to provide a compete sky map. The Japan Space Forum is currently constructing one such facility in Japan. This paper is an update to the construction of tow cameras for the SJHF Bisei Spaceguard Facility. The camera for the 0.5 meter telescope has been installed and is operation. The camera for the 1.0 meter telescope is scheduled to be completed in June of 2001.
