    IAC-14 — 65th International Astronautical Congress


    The Symposium will address the complete spectrum of technical issues of space debris: measurements, modelling, risk assessment in space and on the ground, reentry, hypervelocity impacts and protection, mitigation and standards, and Space Surveillance.

    A6.1. Measurements

    This session will address advanced ground and space-based measurement techniques, related processing methods, and results characterization of orbital and physical properties of space debris.

    A6.2. Modelling and Risk Analysis

    This session will address the characterization of the current and future debris population and methods for in-orbit and on-ground assessments. The in-orbit analysis will cover collission risk estimates based on statistical population models and deterministic catalogues, and active avoidance.

    A6.3. Hypervelocity Impacts and Protection

    The session will address passive protection, shielding and damage predictions. Shielding aspects will be supported by experimental and computational results of HVI tests. Use of HVI techniques for debris mitigation.

    A6.4. Mitigation and Standards

    This session will focus on the definition and implementation of debris prevention and reduction measures and vehicle passive protection. The session will also address space debris mitigation guidelines and standards that exist already or are in preparation at the national or international level.

    A6.7. Operations in Space Debris Environment, Situational Awareness

    This session will address the multiple aspects associated to safe operations in Space dealing with Space Debris, including operational assessment from observations, catalogue build-up and maintainance, data aggregation from different sources, relevant data exchanges standards and conjunctions analyses.

    A6.8. (joint session with Space Security Committee): Policy, Legal, Institutional and Economic Aspects of Space Debris Detection, Mitigation and Removal

    This session will deal with the non-technical aspects of space debris detection, mitigation and removal. Policy, legal and institutional aspects includes role of IADC and UNCOPUOS and other multilateral bodies. Economic issues including insurance, financial incentives and funding for space debris mitigation and removal. The role of international cooperation in addressing these issues will be considered.
