An International Environmental Agreement for space debris mitigation among asymmetric nations

Michael J. Singer, John T. Musacchio
2011 Acta Astronautica  
In game-theoretic framing, each actor independently attempts to find a "best response" to other actors' strategies.  ...  These guidelines share a focus on (a) preventing on-orbit breakups, (b) removing space systems at end of life (EOL), and (c) limiting release of launch-and mission-related objects during normal operations  ...

The Space Infrastructure Vulnerability Cadastre: Orbital Debris Critical Loads

Adrian V. Gheorghe, Daniel E. Yuchnovicz
2015 International Journal of Disaster Risk Science  
A space infrastructure vulnerability cadastre could serve as a governance tool for use by developers and operators of critical space infrastructures to better communicate the current and future vulnerability  ...  The concept of environmental critical loads is applied to heavily used orbits as a way to indicate acceptable debris density for satellite operations, and when debris density / risk thresholds approach  ...  on careful study and analysis.  ...

Optimizing hauling vehicle mix for debris removal: A queueing theory approach

James D. Brooks, David Mendonca
2013 2013 IEEE International Conference on Technologies for Homeland Security (HST)  
This work explores one aspect of debris removal system design, the optimal mix of hauling vehicles, from two perspectives: efficiency and equity.  ...  The results suggest that the solution to the optimal mix of hauling vehicles is nominally the same for a wide range of arrival rates for some system configurations.  ...  Another possible area of future work is to explore competition between multiple contractors, each having some set of hauling vehicles from a game theoretic perspective.  ...

Model of an International Environmental Agreement among Asymmetric Nations applied to Debris Mitigation [article]

Michael J. Singer, John T. Musacchio (University of California, Santa Cruz)
2010 arXiv   pre-print
This work brings together two recent modeling advances: i) a game theoretic model for studying the potential gains from IEA cooperation between nations with asymmetric costs and benefits, ii) an orbital  ...  The problem of space debris is similar to other international environmental problems in that there is a potential for a tragedy of the commons effect--individual nations bear all the cost of their mitigation  ...  In game-theoretic framing, each actor independently attempts to find a "best response" to other players' strategies.  ...
