Space geodesy 2015-2017
In this research group, we study various space geodetic and astronomical observing techniques covering different wavelengths.
In the project, photographic plates obtained during the Carte du Ciel -project will be digitised and the positions of the stars will be remeasured.
In the ESA-funded StreakDet project, we investigate all-around detection and reduction algorithms applicable to optical observations of satellites and space debris.
We study the use of active and passive optical techniques for monitoring space objects in the near-Earth environment.
