Paper Abstract

The Air Force Research Laboratory Directed Energy Directorate has collected and analyzed photometric data using the SILC filters for Space Object Identification (SOI) of geosynchronous (GEO) satellites. This set of filters was designed as part of the Space Battlelab initiative, SOI In Living Color (SILC). The photometric data of geosynchronous satellites were taken using a charge-coupled device (CCD) on the 24-inch Ritchey-Chretien telescope at Capilla Peak Observatory of the University of New Mexico. The objects under discussion are satellites with similar and dissimilar bus structures in a cluster. The data and analysis results to date are discussed.
