Augmentation and Optimisation of the Australian Desert Fireball Network to Enable New Planetary Science
MetadataShow full item record
Planetary science is limited by the scarcity of extraterrestrial samples of known origin. Fireball camera networks can provide these in the form of meteorites with known pre-atmospheric entry orbits. Here, a new digital fireball observatory implementing a novel timing technique is described. This design has enabled the Desert Fireball Network to cover a third of Australia, recover two meteorites with orbits and observe more than a dozen additional meteorite dropping fireballs.

Howie, R.; Paxman, J.; Bland, Phil; C Towner, M.; Cupak, M.; Sansom, E.; Devillepoix, H.A.R. (2017)The expansion of the Australian Desert Fireball Network has been enabled by the development of a new digital fireball observatory based around a consumer digital camera. The observatories are more practical and much more ...

The assumption of a straight line trajectory has been considered an acceptable simplification for ...
