Abstract

This paper is an overview of the space debris modeling techniques and tools used at The Aerospace Corporation in support of the Air Force space debris efforts. A discussion of the software tools IMPACT, which does the breakup analysis, and DEBRIS, which does collision hazard assessment, is presented. Additionally, the analysis done to improve the operational characteristics of these programs is shown.
