Paper Abstract

The Bisei Spaceguard Center is an observatory complex located in Bisei Town Japan that comprises a 0.5-meter and a 1.0-meter very wide field automated telescope system. It is a joint project of the Japan Space Forum and the Japan Spaceguard Association. The mission of the Bisei Spaceguard Center is to detect Near Earth Objects (NEOs) and to do follow up observations to help determine the orbits of the newly detected and currently known NEOs.
