PROCEEDINGS OF SIXTH US/RUSSIAN SPACE SURVEILLANCE WORKSHOP. August 22-26, 2005 / Ed. by P. Kenneth Seidelmann. Spb.: VVM. . Ltd., 2005 319 pp.

This volume contains the papers presented at the Fifth U.S.-Russian Space Surveillance Workshop held on August 22-26, 2005, at the Central (Pulkovo) Astronomical Observatory of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Saint-Petersburg, Russia. These papers cover different aspects of modem space surveillance including technique and results of the observations in the near-Earth space, mathematical methods used for tracking space objects and maintaining the relevant catalogues, investigations of space debris.
