The aim of this article is to present the architecture proposed for the bistatic radar BIRALES (BIstatic Radar for LEo Surveys) as an instrument for space debris detection in the framework of the European Space Surveillance and Tracking Support Framework (EUSST). In the following paragraphs, the architecture and the upgrades done so far will be presented, as well as the multibeam technology and system calibration. Eventually, the orbit determination algorithm both for known and unknown objects is described, along with the numerical simulation.

Abstract

The aim of this article is to present the architecture proposed for the bistatic radar BIRALES (BIstatic Radar for LEo Surveys) as an instrument for space debris detection in the framework of the European Space Surveillance and Tracking Support Framework (EUSST). In the following paragraphs, the architecture and the upgrades done so far will be presented, as well as the multibeam technology and system calibration. Eventually, the orbit determination algorithm both for known and unknown objects is described, along with the numerical simulation.
