Discover The Space Surveillance Telescope (SST)..!

Development…

  • Space Surveillance Telescope was developed to detect and track previously unseen small objects at the deep space altitudes associated with geosynchronous orbits (roughly 22,000 miles high).

Technical Advances…

  • Begun in 2002, SST achieved many technical firsts and advances. Able to search an area in space the size of the United States in seconds, Space Surveillance Telescope uses the first large curved charge coupled device focal array. It currently possesses the steepest primary mirror ever polished allowing the telescope to have the fastest optics of this aperture class.

System Capabilities…

  • The system is capable of detecting a small laser pointer on top of New York City’s Empire State Building from a distance equal to Miami, Florida. These features combine to provide orders of magnitude improvements in field of view and scanning for deep space surveillance.
