NASAs Asteroid Tracker Challenge
NASA must find ways to observe, track & characterize asteroids that may threaten Earth. NASA needs your help to improve systems needed to identify & track asteroids using large arrays of antennas. For this specific challenge, NASA needs help to develop an algorithm that can determine the optimum selection and scheduling of sets of antennas (as part of a large, array based deep space radar capability) to detect and track multiple asteroids as they travel through space.
