Surveillance of Space with Passive Radar using the Murchison Widefield Array
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis investigates the use of the Murchison Widefield Array as a passive radar receiver for the surveillance of space. Using FM radio as the transmitter source, the MWA is able to surveil a large volume of space to detect and track satellites, space debris and other objects in orbit. This thesis covers orbital-specific signal processing methods for radar product formation, as well as orbit determination, and culminates in an Australia-wide observation campaign.
