The Solution of Applied Problems Using the Space Debris Prediction and Analysis Model

The present chapter illustrates the applications of space debris prediction and analysis models to solving applied problems of collisions of spacecraft with debris particles assessment accounting for shape and orientation of typical spacecraft modules. The model takes into account the spatial density of distribution of particles larger than 0.1 em and its evolution. Examples of long-term forecasts of orbital debris environment evolution are given for different scenarios of future human space activities.
