I'm writing a simulation a space surveillance telescope. The population of satellites it observes is initialized using TLEs, and the telescope also is given these TLEs at the beginning of the night so it knows where to look for the satellites. The telescope does not have knowledge of the underlying data used to generate the TLE.
As the simulated night progresses, the telescope obtains new observations of the satellite. Is there any way to update the TLEs with the data from these new observations? I'm new to using TLEs but from what I understand I'm guessing the answer is no.
If the answer to the above is no, but then the telescope also had the underlying data used to generate the TLE, is it then possible and advisable to "update" the TLE by generating a new TLE using both the old and the new data?
