The review shows the main ideas, methods of identification GSS with using multicolor photometric information. Listed photometers, optical geometric and dynamic characteristics used for identification. It is shown that the effectiveness of the researchers depends largely on the availability of a photometric database. The database should include a set of parameters, which are determined or calculated from photometric observations and unambiguously describe the individual characteristics of the observed object, or groups of objects of one functional class. Some examples are shown.
A photometric DataBase is of commercial interest to interested organizations, since information on the status and behavior of a particular satellite can be presented to interested customers.
