Abstract

Space System Dynamics Laboratory in Kyushu University has initiated IDEA, the project for in-situ Debris Environmental Awareness to correctly understand current space debris problem. In order to estimate debris environment on orbit, we use a constellation of small satellites which are covered with a detector of dust impact. In this paper, some results of a mission analysis which demonstrates collision flux for the dust detectors are shown, as well as an outline of our project are. Future work to determine an orbit of the debris cloud which are generated from certain breakup events are also described.
