Lots of space surveillance
U.S. and Australian militaries have agreed to place two key U.S. space systems in Australia. The Darpa space-surveillance optical telescope (SST) is designed to offer an “order-of-magnitude improvement” over ground-based electro-optical deep-space-surveillance telescopes in search rate and the ability to detect and track satellites, they said. “The SST gives a wider field of view and can better detect and track small objects at deep space altitudes-about 22,000 miles above Earth’s surface-associated with geosynchronous orbits.” A U.S. Air Force C-band space-surveillance radar-which can track up to 200 objects a day and help to identify satellites, their orbits and potential anomalies is scheduled to move from Antigua in the Caribbean to Western Australia in 2014 and increase coverage of space objects in the South-according to officials, and is expected to boost space-surveillance capabilities for both nations.

Note: I wonder if the “anomalies” applies to UFO activity (or maybe is exclusive to UFO activity)?
