The Center for Space Situational Awareness Research (CSSAR) in the Department of Physics at the US Air Force Academy is interested in satellite tracking and characterization. CSSAR is actively working in the areas of (1) non-imaging photometric, spectral, and polarimetric techniques leading to the identification and characterization of unresolved space objects; (2) fusion of disparate data sources to maximize the situational awareness, and development of optical sensing capability; and (3) development of optical sensing capability. CSSAR has developed a network of small aperture telescopes that will provide global coverage of the space catalog and the capability to observe satellites simultaneously from multiple telescope locations for data fusion research.
