Abstract

This paper presents a computer vision and computational intelligence approach to space domain awareness. The approach is specifically designed to produce probabilistic density functions and state estimates in real-time for objects within the domain. PDFs are also generated for regions where there are no objects, and where there is insufficient information to assert object existence. The approach is dynamic and naturally adapts to changes of state to include maneuvering objects. The processing speed of the approach is independent of the number of objects, instead only dependent on the size of the domain, the accuracy desired in all dimensions, and the computational architecture.
