Abstract

In this paper, we investigate a new track initiation technique enabling the use of a low-cost radar system for Low-Earth-Orbit surveillance. This technique is based on a first association of observations with little ambiguity followed by a fast Initial Orbit Determination. This study supports the feasibility of the system as this technique shows a coverage of 84,4% within 6 days, with a combinatorial complexity kept under control when assessed in a realistic multitarget tracking context.
