  • Abstract A new orbital debris evolutionary model is being developed by the NASA Orbital Debris Program Office at Johnson Space Center. LEGEND, a LEO-to-GEO Environment Debris model, is capable of reproducing the historical debris environment as well as performing future debris environment projection. The model covers the near Earth space between 200 and 40,000 km altitude and outputs debris distributions in one-dimensional (altitude), two-dimensional (altitude, latitude), and three-dimensional… CONTINUE READING
