The missile impact tracking system can be used to monitor space junk.

Today, more than 750 thousand objects of space debris with a diameter of more than 1

cm, moving at a speed of more than 28 thousand km / h. Basically, they are various remnants of rockets or shuttles, ranging from huge accelerating blocks to small bolts and nuts.

Scientists believe that the use of radar radar will track the trajectory of space debris, regardless of the weather and time of day.

“The possibilities of modernradar early warning systems for observing high-orbital space objects (VOK). In this work, VOQO refers to objects located at a distance greater than 10 thousand km. So far, the main source of information about orbital parameters has been optical means of observation. At the same time, the main task of modern early warning radars is to monitor near-earth space for low-orbit space objects. ”

Earlier it was reported that Roscosmos plans to deploy optical-electronic stations in South Africa, Mexico and Chile to warn of dangerous situations in near-Earth space.
