NOTICE: JPL's Center for NEO Studies (CNEOS), which operates neo.jpl.nasa.gov, will substantially
upgrade the site in early 2017, giving it a new look-and-feel, improved navigation and added content.
Scripts which extract data from HTML on the current site will have to be revised to use
the related API on the new site. Specifics on the new APIs will be provided here a month before
the site transition takes place.
ASIAGO DLR ASTEROID SURVEY (ADAS)
ADAS is a dedicated asteroid search and follow-up program located at
Asiago-CimaEkar, Italy. It is a joint venture between the Department of
Astronomy of the University of Asiago and the Astronomical Observatory
of Padua in Italy and the DLR Institute of Space Sensor Technology and
Planetary Exploration, Berlin-Adlershof, Germany. The current system
uses a 2K x 2K CCD detector and a 0.6 m aperture Schmidt telescope.
Observations began in February 2001 and this effort
will concentrate their searching at small solar elongation angles in an
effort to discover near-Earth objects in the inner solar system such as
Atens and the putative Inner Earth Objects whose orbits are completely
inside that of the Earth.
