Abstract : The report discusses the problem of detection of small size space debris and asteroids. Analysis of existing Russian ground based and space based sensors is provided us to perform the assigned objectives are selected: a cm-band BMD radar, dm band BMD radar, an experimental mm/cm band radar complex, a mobile multipurpose telescope, visible/UV band on board space sensors (one is on orbit now and the second is being prepared for launch to MIR station), optical telescopes of the observatories network of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Results: experimental detection and identification of small size space objects obtained by four BMD radars are presented. A technique for the experiment on possible detection of asteroids is proposed. It involves use of optical sensors and high potential radars.
