Short summary
We have applied three different methods to examine the observability, both tracking and discovery, of near-Earth objects (NEOs) by the EISCAT 3D radar system currently under construction. There are, to our knowledge, no previous studies on the expected discovery rates of NEOs using radar systems. We show that it is feasible to regularly track NEOs and mini-moons. We also show it is possible to discover new NEOs and mini-moons with EISCAT 3D, something never before done with radar systems.
