Abstract

A simulation has been developed to examine how orbit determination accuracy, size of avoidance maneuvers, encounter geometry and warning time affect the probability of collision in a collision avoidance scenario. The simulation shows that reasonably sized collision avoidance maneuvers are effective in reducing the probability of collision only if accurate orbit determination data is available for both the active satellite and the threat. Also, a method to determine the maneuvers required to reduce the probability of collision to a desired value is presented.
