UNSW Canberra: Node of the Falcon Telescope Network (FTN)
The FTN is a research network of 0.5m f8.1 semi-autonomous optical telescopes sited in collaborating institutions around the globe. The network, sponsored by the USAFA in Colorado, USA, includes nodes in the Northern and Southern Hemisphere, including one at UNSW Canberra.
The optical observation of spaceborne objects, such as debris and the growing Cubesat population, is conducted at UNSW Canberra, using the Falcon Telescope Network to evaluate the object interaction with the atmosphere.
