Paper Abstract

The conception of ground-based optical observations of 'Space Debris'--pieces is described. This conception is based on the experience of photographic and TV observations of geostationary satellites and some theoretical investigations that have been carried out at the Institute for astronomy of Russian Academy of Sciences. The following problems are considered in this report: positional and photometric observations of Space Debris in GEO; the optimization of optoelectronic observations; the advantages of base-line optical observations. The secular evolution of Space Debris particles on high-latitude orbits due to solar radiation pressure is also described.
