There is an excellent article on tracking space debris in the January 1999
issue of the Smithsonian (pp. 46-55).  A greatly shortened version of the
article may be found here:
http://www.smithsonianmag.si.edu/smithsonian/issues99/jan99/trash.html

Included in the article are photos of the electromagnetic "fence" in New
Mexico (also at the web site) and the large radar array in North Dakota
(Cavalier Air Station) that tracks debris.

Cheers.
