Abstract

Kyushu University has performed some low-velocity impact experiments to understand the dispersion properties of fragments newly created by low-velocity collision possible in geosynchronous Earth orbit. Those experimental data are utilized to establish a mathematical prediction model to be used in debris generation and propagation codes. To exam the applicability of the NASA standard breakup model, which has been developed based on hypervelocity impact experiments, to low-velocity collisions possible in geosynchronous Earth orbit, the author re-analyzed those experimental data based on the method used in the NASA standard breakup model and compared them with the NASA standard breakup model. The comparison indicates that the NASA standard breakup model can be applied to low-velocity collision with some modifications.
