Paper Abstract

Thousands of space objects in the Earth orbital-region known as the GEO belt are categorized as debris. Relatively little is known about the thousands of space debris objects. Remote sensing techniques offer the only viable opportunity to learn more about these objects. In this paper an analysis is performed for observations using a hypothetical space-based multi-band infrared instrument to measure characteristics of GEO belt space debris. The purpose of this study is to understand the limitations of such an instrument and sensing modality for studying GEO belt space debris. Although certain aspects of this study are analytical, the results are anchored with results from the NASA-WISE experiments.
