This paper aims to characterize a spacecraft explosion event using correlated observations. Outcomes of the characterization measure will enable us to make current space situational awareness accurate, and to predict realistic future space situations. An event to be characterized in this paper is a breakup of the Titan 3C Transtage (1968-081E) exploded in the geostationary region. Characteristics to be evaluated include delta-velocity given to each fragment though the event, and a size distribution of the breakup fragments. This paper also discusses how effective the evaluated characteristics will contribute to re-visiting observation plans for the breakup fragments.
