We present a refined method for creating orbits of fictitious Earth impactors that are representative of the actual impactor population. Such orbits are crucial inputs to a variety of investigations, such as those that seek to discern how well and how early a particular asteroid survey can detect impactors, or to understand the progression of impact probability as an object is tracked after discovery. We will describe our method, which relies onÖpik's b-plane formalism, and place it in contextdoi:10.1109/aero.2019.8742172 fatcat:q2w2u4zihvgf3gtfqiyyfsmvky
