Astronomical and physical data for meteoroids recorded by the Altair radar

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

We present preliminary results of orbital and physical measurements of a small selection of meteoroids observed at UHF frequencies by the ALTAIR radar on Kwajalein Island on November 17, 1998. The head echoes observed by ALTAIR allowed precise determination of velocities and decelerations from which orbits and masses of individual meteoroids derived from numerical modelling have been measured. During these observations, the ALTAIR radar detected average head echo rates of 1665 per hour.
