Electromagnetic interference from plasmas generated in meteoroids impacts
Istituto FISBAT - CNR - Via Gobetti 101, I-40129 Bologna, Italy
Accepted: 25 May 1998
It is shown that the plasma generated during an impact of a meteoroid with an artificial satellite can produce electromagnetic radiation below the microwave frequency range. This interference is shown to exceed local noise sources and might disturb regular satellite operations.
