Abstract
The Canadian contribution to the Space Surveillance Network will end in this decade, but Canadian dependence on satellite systems for communications, search and rescue, and surveillance will continue or increase. It, therefore, becomes necessary to reconsider the requirement for ground-based surveillance of these space assets to support national interests and systems. As a first step, an analysis is done on the satellite population in the geosynchronous belt between longitudes of 40 degrees W and 160 degrees WW in terms of frequency and quality of observations on Canadian satellites required to maintain accurate threat and mission payload assessment data on this population.
