V.F. Frolov
Annotations languages:

The article analyzes the composition of the space debris, the characteristic of altitude distribution of particles of different sizes; proposes methods for determining the vital parameters such as: the annual probability of collisions between catalogued and uncatalogued debris particles, the probability and conditions of collision of the spacecraft with space debris particles.
Keywords: space debris, launch vehicles, spacecrafts, altitude distribution, probability of collision
