    A6. 20th IAA SYMPOSIUM ON SPACE DEBRIS

    This symposium, organized by the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA), will address the complete spectrum of issues associated to space debris, including orbital sustainability and operations in debris dominated environment. It will cover every aspect of Space Environment Management (SEM) including Mitigation and Remediation measures, Space Surveillance and Tracking (SST), Space Situational Awareness (SSA), Space Traffic Management (STM), including all aspects of measurements, modelling, risk assessment in space and on the ground, re-entry, hypervelocity impacts and protection, mitigation and standards, post-mission disposal, remediation, debris removal, Space Surveillance, collision avoidance as well as non-technical topics associated to space debris dominated environment.

    A6.3. Impact-Induced Mission Effects and Risk Assessments

    This session addresses disruptions of spacecraft operations induced by hypervelocity impacts including spacecraft anomalies, perturbation of operations, component failures up to mission loss , and spacecraft fragmentations. 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.

    A6.8-E9.1. Political, Legal, Institutional and Economic Aspects of Space Debris Mitigation and Removal - STM Security

    This session will address all non-technical aspects of Operations and This session will address all non-technical aspects of Operations and Security in a Debris Dominated Environment. This STM session will mainly include the non-technical aspects of space debris mitigation and removal. Political, legal and institutional aspects include role of IADC and UNCOPUOS and other multilateral bodies. Economic issues include insurance, financial incentives and funding for space debris mitigation and removal. The role of international cooperation in addressing these issues will be considered.

    A6.10-E10.2. Joint Technical Session: “Near-Earth Objects & Space Debris”

    Artificial and natural space debris pose a growing concern while the awareness about hazards associated with Earth-crossing asteroids and comets is increasing. The rising number of artificial satellite objects in LEO, HEO, GEO as well as cis-lunar space, the potential for a rapid increase in the associated collisional debris could cause long-lasting impediments if not explored further. Similarly, Near-Earth Objects (NEOs) span sizes from micrometeorites to km-scale objects, posing a potential hazard to people and property both in space and on Earth. This Joint Session aims to explore common aspects of these challenges by inviting papers that: • Identify the physical threat domain, examine approaches to protecting lives and property on Earth and in space, and discuss how to facilitate local and international coordination. • Explore the collaboration potential and new developments in detection, characterization, observational techniques, tracking systems, and orbit prediction capabilities. • Discuss (or anlayze) the synergies in current efforts to mitigate their impact risks, and propose strategies for their deflection or avoidance. • Discuss risk management, highlight associated legal, policy, economic and ethical aspects, and consider how to inform and advise decision-makers. • Research other key fields, including public communication and education.

    A6.IP. Interactive Presentations - 20th IAA SYMPOSIUM ON SPACE DEBRIS

    This session offers a unique opportunity to deliver your key messages in an interactive presentation on any of the subjects of Space Debris addressed in the classic Sessions. The presentation will be displayed on a digital screen in a dedicated location and available for view by all Congress attendees for the entire Congress week. In addition, one afternoon is dedicated exclusively for the attendees to view the Interactive Presentations, and the author will be assigned a specific ten minute slot to personally present the topic and interact with the attendees present. The Interactive Presentation may take advantage of all electronic display capabilities, such as: PowerPoint charts, embedded hot links, pictures, audio and video clips etc. An award will also be presented to the author of the best Interactive Presentation in the A Category at a special ceremony. An Abstract that follows the standard format must be submitted by the deadline for standard IAC abstracts.
