Abstract
To better characterize the orbital debris environment, improvements must be made to the overall sensitivity of the orbital debris surveillance system. There are many ways to improve the sensitivity of the optical system: through hardware and software improvements, and through observing techniques. AMOS has been investigating algorithms for processing video data as a technique for improving the sensitivity of the optical sensors. This paper discusses preliminary results for two different approaches to the sensitivity issue, and the potential for implementing them in real time.
