Sub-Kilometer Asteroid Diameter Survey (SKADS)

The Sub-Kilometer Asteroid Diameter Survey (SKADS) (Gladman et al. 2009) acquired good-quality orbital and absolute magnitude (H) determinations for a sample of small main-belt asteroids in order to study the orbital and size distribution beyond H = 15, down to sub-kilometer sizes (H > 18). Based on six observing nights over an 11-night baseline, SKADS detected, measured photometry for, and linked observations of 1087 asteroids which have one-week time baselines or more. This data set contains the astrometry, photometry, and orbits of the 1087 asteroids detected by SKADS.
