Mapping the Inner Solar System
The Asteroid Institute is developing tools to enable at-scale analysis of moving-object data for asteroid discovery, characterization, and impact monitoring.
Algorithms for Small Body Science
By creating a novel, open-source, and scalable software platform, the Asteroid Institute will enable the deployment and development of new algorithms and tools for the analysis of moving sources in archival and upcoming photometric surveys.
- Discovery with THOR
- Object Precovery
- Utilities and Toolkits
The Asteroid Institute, through its partnership with the University of Washington's DIRAC institute, and Google Cloud, deployed the THOR algorithm to discover 104 new asteroids in archival dataLearn about THOR
