Fusion and Modeling Algorithums (FUMA)
Project runs from 03/23/2015 to 12/31/2019
This work addresses a problem of space debris detection, and target parameters estimation from both optical and radar data. It aims at:
– A network-based experimental design to make measurement of existing debris
– Exploiting two or more sensing modalities, and fusing information of at least Optical and Radar measurements potentially made at geographically distinct locations, and enhancing the data for analysis
– Developing a Bayesian inference framework to overcome the diversity of tracks and targets
– The optical data will be captured by a 60 cm telescope which is at disposal to CTU Prague team. The radar measurements will be obtained from a Czech amateur radio astronomy network. The optical and radar measurement will be synchronized, i.e. the same orbiting object will be seen simultaneously in both sensor modalities.
