The NEO Rapid Observation, Characterization and Key Simulations

Project description

An innovative method to mitigate NEOs potential threats

The perfection of astronomical observation systems led to an increasing discovery rate of near-Earth objects (NEOs). NEOs are asteroids, comets and large meteors that intersect Earth's orbit, representing a possible crash threat. As a consequence, it is significant to increase knowledge on their physical characterisation as well as the number of discovered NEOs to provide effective defence of citizens and infrastructures in the event of a collision. The EU-funded NEOROCKS project proposes an innovative method to perfect observational operations, support modelling and simulation work, promote international strategy and reduce response times. A group of expert astronomers using large aperture telescopes with sophisticated instrumentation will evaluate how fast follow-up observations are performed on newly discovered NEOs.
