'Space Fence' radar operational, tracks objects as small as 10 centimeters March 30 (UPI) – A radar system known as Space Fence, which can track material in space as small as 10 centimeters, is fully operational, the U.S. Space Force announced. Using enhanced S-band radar, the Space Fence improves on previous capabilities of the Space Surveillance Network in tracking objects such as commercial and military satellites, depleted rocket boosters and space debris in low, medium, and geosynchronous Earth orbit regimes, Space Force officials said on Friday. The SSN has tracked 26,000 objects already accounted for in space, and the new system is expected to vastly increase that figure, essentially offering a catalog and location of every object in space. https://www.upi.com/Defense-News/2020/03/30/Space-Fence-radar-operational-tracks-objects-as-small-as-10-centimeters/4311585591501/?ts_=23
