    Impact-Induced Mission Effects and Risk Assessments


    This session addresses disruptions of spacecraft operations induced by hypervelocity impacts including spacecraft anomalies, perturbation of operations, and component failures up to mission loss. It includes risk assessments for impact vulnerability studies and corresponding system tools. Further topics are spacecraft impact protection and shielding studies, laboratory impact experiments, numerical simulations, and on-board diagnostics to characterize impacts such as impact sensors, accelerometers, etc.
