Abstract

This paper proposes a search strategy to effectively detect and identify fragments from breakups in the geosynchronous earth orbit (GEO) based on orbital debris modeling techniques. The modeling techniques describe debris generation and propagation to predict population and motion of fragmentation debris from breakups. This search strategy is superior to the existing survey observations in terms of the efficiency on origin identification of fragments from breakups. This paper demonstrates how the search strategy distinguishes features of two breakups and identifies the origins of detected fragments as a corresponding breakup.
