International Journal of Space Science and Engineering (IJSPACESE), Vol. 4, No. 3, 2017

Abstract: In this paper, the flux distribution of space debris and micrometeoroids in the orbit of space station is analysed, the collision distribution characteristics of space debris and micrometeoroids at different typical positions in different flight attitude during the operation of space station are obtained. The collision probabilities with the space debris during the operation of space station are also obtained. Combined with the space debris distribution and protection requirements, a space station in-orbit protection scheme is proposed. The protection efficiency of the protection scheme is simulated and the simulation analysis data of different protection schemes are obtained. The research results obtained in this paper can provide reference for the design of space station protection scheme.
