An overview on space debris protection best practices
28-29 November 2022 9:00-11:00 CET
Space debris represent a real threat to the Earth orbit access and utilization. In the development and management of a space mission, it is important to focus on the evaluation of impact risk, the protection of spacecraft from debris impact, and the modelling of impact-induced fragmentation.
This webinar will focus on the current status and the most promising advancements in this field, introducing the best practices suggested by the scientific community and focusing on specific case studies. Attendees will learn about recent advances in catastrophic fragmentation modelling due to hypervelocity impact, impact risk assessment, spacecraft protection.
The last hour of the webinar will focus on impact testing, with details on the existing technologies and facilities and the current perspectives for the sector.
