Visible to the public Robust Capacity-Constrained Scheduling and Data-Based Modeling

Abstract:

More than a half million pieces of space debris are in low-Earth orbit, of which about 5% are considered a threat to operational satellites. Collisions, such as the one that occurred on February 10, 2009 between the decommissioned Russian military communications satellite Kosmos-2251 and a operational U.S. Iridium communications satellite, produce yet more debris, and the accumulation of space debris renders low-Earth orbit increasingly dangerous and un- usable.

Visible to the public Robust Capacity-Constrained Scheduling and Data-Based Model Refinement for Enhanced Collision Avoidance in Low-Earth Orbit

The objective of this research is to improve the ability to track the orbits of space debris and thereby reduce the frequency of collisions.
