The partial goal of the transformation of a newly acquired telescope into a professional observation device was a design and development of an image processing pipeline. The pipeline can process an acquired raw image of space debris into object observations in time (tracklets), and further correlate and identify them with selected catalogues. The system contains nine image processing elements (IPEs) in total that are further described in this chapter and have already been deployed and tested on real space debris data.
