In this report, we describe the advisory study for both the Asteroid Impact Monitoring (AIM) as a stand-alone European mission and for AIM with its second component, the US Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) mission under study at NASA by the John Hopkins University...
Contractor: Observatoire de la Côte d`Azur / Contract Number: 4000113831 / Start Year: 2015
The increase of space debris means that active space debris removal becomes relevant. An active debris removal mission has a positive effect (or risk reduction) for all satellites in the same orbital band. This leads to a dilemma: each agency has an incentive to delay its...
Contractor: Univ. of Liverpool / Contract Number: 4000113919 / Start Year: 2015
Space debris mitigation requirements specific to propulsion systems are scrutinized and compliance of OHB reference propulsion architectures is assessed. The risk of generating debris due to a failure in a propulsion system is assessed with a focus on the specific risk of a...
