- NASA’s NEOWISE spacecraft. NEOWISE is an infrared telescope that orbits the Earth, taking a photograph of the sky every eleven seconds. NEOWISE has seen over 158,000 asteroids, and has discovered over 30,000.
- NEOCam, a NASA mission that is currently in Extended Phase A. NEOCam, an infrared space telescope, would measure the sizes and brightnesses of millions of asteroids, and would be the largest infrared survey of comets.
- Internal IPAC/Caltech asteroid detection development.
