Abstract : This document contains the abstracts from 63 papers published in support of the U.S. Air Force Phillips Laboratory Phase One Space Debris Research Program. This program, which was completed on 31 Dec 93, focused on characterizing the low earth orbit space debris environment and establishing the current and projected hazards to U.S. Air Force and Department of Defense space assets. The program emphasized both the measurement and modeling efforts needed to characterize the current debris environment for debris sizes down to 1 mm. In addition to the paper abstracts, this document lists paper titles, authors, and the paper publication sources.
