The orbital debris modeling can build evolutionary models as essential tools to predict the current or future orbital debris populations, and also to discuss what and how to do for orbital debris mitigation and environmental remediation. The orbital debris modeling can also devise an effective search strategy applicable for breakup fragments in the geostationary region using ground-based optical sensors, and to evaluate the effectiveness of space-based measurements of objects not tracked from the ground, both to contribute to space situational awareness. Another application of the orbital debris modeling is to estimate attitude motion of space objects to be removed for environmental remediation. This paper briefly introduces efforts into orbital debris modeling and applications at Kyushu University.
