Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper presents the current status of space debris modeling and analysis tools being developed in Japan. This paper also introduces briefly an orbital debris evolutionary model in low-Earth orit being developed by Kyushu University in collaboration with JAXA and demonstrates some future projection scenarios. A suite of debris mitigation standard support tools is being developed for use by space system planners for debris risk assessment and determining compliance with JAXA's debris mitigation guidelines. A debris collision risk analysis tool for calculating the collision probability for each part of a space system is also under development. Copyright IAF/IAA. All rights reserved.
