Title: Radar Reconaissance of Near-Earth Objects at the Dawn of the Next Millenium
Authors: Ostro, S. J.
Issue Date: 1996
Abstract: From Intro.: Radar, the most powerful groundbased technique for post-discovery investigation of NEOs, can contribute a great deal to their exploration as well as to identification and mitigation of hazardous objects. My intentions in this article are to review the current state of NEO radar reconnaissance, examine the imminent prospects for this work as upgraded instrumentation becomes available, and propose construction of a next-generation radar telescope that, unlike any existing radar instrument, would be optimized for, and dedicated to, NEO radar.
