SLR Hit Rate 2015
« on: May 11, 2016, 04:38:42 AM »
Hello from Tokyo.

The following link contains the quantity (not the quality) statistics for the productive 20 SLR stations last year.  Please have a look.

  Pass-based hit rate and Normal-point(NP)-based hit rate.
  Average number of normal points per pass.
  Average pass duration, defined as the time between the 1st and the last NP.

Yarragadee's hit rates are really awesome.  Note that the hit rate of the microwave techniques will be almost 100%.

I would also like to point out that some stations do not (try to?) track a satellite for a long time as seen in Figure 3.  I think low orbiters should be observed from horizon to horizon unless there is a conflict with other low orbiters.
