Abstract: The DECam NEO Survey (Allen, et al.) will characterize the size distribution of small near Earth objects by combining a large search area with a deep limiting magnitude. In order to search the roughly 30 Tb of imaging data for the rare faint objects requires a high performance Moving Object Detection System (MODS). This paper outlines the MODS algorithms, implementation, and performance during the first year of the NEO Survey.
