Abstract
Orbital debris in low-earth-orbit poses an increasing threat to the Space Station. A combined ground-based/on-orbit radar detection system can provide adequate warning to minimize the collision threat. Previous studies have shown that a debris warning system must be capable of providing accurate tracking information one to two orbits in advance of a possible conjunction (collision). An on-board sensor (radar) is the most cost effective method for getting this updated tracking information.
