NEO Properties Portal


What can the NEO Properties Portal be used for?

The portal serves as a NEO information bank for both project and public use. Our observation priority list, which is consistently updated, provides all necessary data on the NEOs which should be observed as they are currently visible from Earth. With objects ranked in terms of e.g. scientific interest, accessibility, completeness and quality of available data, this functionality has been designed to support and coordinate observation campaigns. From the observation data gained further NEO physical properties relevant to mitigation/exploration missions will be derived and provided within the NEO Properties Portal. Moreover the Mission Opportunities Table is designed to facilitate the identification of suitable mitigation/exploration mission targets based on criteria defined by the user.
