Abstract:This project's objective is to develop an improved method for detecting Near-Earth Asteroids by utilizing radar technology. By reflecting an electromagnetic pulse off of an asteroid, it is possible to calculate its distance from the Earth, relative velocity and diameter. A scaled experiment was conducted to prove the concept.
