Space is becoming an increasingly crowded domain. As it becomes more congested, the ability to accurately detect and track objects, both natural and man-made, becomes more and more important. Having an accurate space surveillance network allows us to protect our own space assets while also maintaining awareness of foreign space assets and threats to our satellites such as debris and small meteorites. This means that the ability to detect small, dim objects is key to being able to protect our space assets. This thesis will seek to expand on and improve certain existing space object detection techniques and algorithms.
