The improvements, by means of radar observations, of the accuracy with which the orbits of near Earth asteroids and comets are determined are a key factor in order to be able to exclude future collisions of any of these bodies with the Earth. The SRT, once equipped with a suitable transmitter, can have an important role in this context. Another application of its capabilities is the detection and orbital cataloging of the man-made orbital debris that is in orbit around the Earth.
