Title: Radar Follow-up of Spaceguard Discoveries: Imaging and Astrometry
Authors: Ostro, S. J.
Issue Date: 1995
Citation: Vulcano, Sicily (Italy)
Abstract: Radar is a very powerful groundbased technique for post-discovery reconnaissance of NEOs and is likely to play a central role in investigating these fantastic worlds during the foreseeable future. Delay- Doppler measurements are orthogonal to optical angle measurements, typically have a fractional precision between 10^-5 and 10^-9, and consequently are invaluable for refining orbits and prediction ephemerides.
