  • Debris avoidance maneuvers are planned when the probability of collision from a conjunction reaches limits set in the space shuttle and space station flight rules. If the probability of collision is greater than 1 in ,, a maneuver will be conducted if it will not result in significant impact to mission objectives.
  • Oct 01,  · Fragmentation events, caused by the collision of two objects in space, have been a significant source of space debris objects over a cumulative five decades of space activity.
  • Jan 12,  · In June , the possibility of a collision between debris and the International Space Station forced the crew of the orbiting lab to take .
  • Collision Warning Because of this debris environment, it is now routine for operators in highly-trafficked orbits to spend time protecting their spacecraft from potentially catastrophic collisions with space junk, by performing ‘collision avoidance manoeuvres’ – basically sending the commands to their spacecraft to get out of the way.

  • May 08,  · Collision avoidance and debris removal are vital to reducing the amount of debris in space, but compliance with the debris mitigation guidelines outlined above has the greatest impact on our space.
  • Jul 30,  · Collisions and road debris Tire treads of large trucks, mattresses, loose stones in potholes and more, roads are littered with all kinds of trash, and all of these can turn travel along a straight road into a crash.
