Evolving Solutions to TSP Variants for Active Space Debris Removal

This paper finds that this part of the design of an active debris removal mission (ADR) can be mapped into increasingly complex variants to the classic Travelling Salesman Problem (TSP) and that they can be solved by the Inver-over algorithm improving the current state-of-the-art in ADR mission design.

Space debris: pose estimation using stereo vision

It is concluded that the use of a stereo-vision-based estimator is a viable option for autonomous operations such as space debris removal and satellite service missions.

Implementation of an Open-Scenario, Long-Term Space Debris Simulation Approach

This paper provides a status update on the implementation of a flexible, long-term space debris simulation approach. The motivation is to build a tool that can assess the long-term impact of various

LightForce Photon-Pressure Collision Avoidance: Updated Efficiency Analysis Utilizing a Highly Parallel Simulation Approach

This paper provides an updated efficiency analysis of the LightForce space debris collision avoidance scheme. LightForce aims to prevent collisions on warning by utilizing photon pressure from ground

Radiometric sensitivity and resolution of synthetic tracking imaging for orbital debris monitoring

We consider sampling and detection strategies for solar illuminated space debris. We argue that the lowest detectable debris cross section may be reduced by 10-100x by analysis of phase-space-pixels

Developing a data fusion concept for radar and optical ground based SST station

As part of the Portuguese Space Surveillance and Tracking (SST) program, a tracking radar and a double Wide Field of View Telescope system (4.3 ° x 2.3 ° ) are being installed at the Pampilhosa da

A Population Dynamics Approach to the Distribution of Space Debris in Low Earth Orbit

The presence of debris in Earth’s orbit poses a significant risk to human activity in outer space. This debris population continues to grow due to ground launches, loss of external parts from space
