COSPAR-12 Associated Event
This PANEL will address / brainstorm the current status and future directions the research community needs to take in finding innovative scientific solutions for the global issues on Space Situational Awareness coupled with space weather and space debris. The panelists are drawn from worldwide experts in this field and they will deliver keynote speeches and overviews highlighting the problem areas and expected new research directions. This panel will deliberate on the importance of a global outreach to bring forth scientific networking and collaborations among interested countries and organizations.
The specialty areas of discussions will include advances in ground- and space-based observations, surveillance and tracking, in-situ measurement techniques, debris and meteoroid environment models, debris flux and collision risk for space missions, on-orbit collision avoidance, re-entry risk assessments, debris mitigation and debris environment remediation techniques and their effectiveness with regard to long-term environment stability, national and international debris mitigation standards and guidelines, hypervelocity accelerator technologies, on-orbit shielding concepts plus dynamical interaction and modeling of vehicles to develop a full 6-DOF theory of space vehicles and orbit debris, methods for accurate and precise recovery and prediction of space object, improved abilities for predicting collisions, and advanced computational and visualization methods.
