Modeling of space debris

Technogeneous pollution of the outer space is a negative consequence of its practical exploration. As a result, many small-size space debris (SD) were formed, the study of which has became a new area in the classical astronomy. Further outer space exploration requires providing the safety of spacecraft flight on the basis of objective assessment of space environment. The space debris models are applied to solve this problem.

This section is a list of services on modeling SD of various sizes and, particularly, on estimating the consequences of spacecraft collisions with SD. They are designed for professionals, students, post-graduate students and amateurs. The SDPA (Space Debris Prediction and Analysis) model, developed by the author, is used to solve the listed tasks.
