     SEARCH AND OBSERVATIONS OF SPACE DEBRIS AND NEAR EARTH OBJECTS AT INASAN

    The concept of Space Debris is tightly connected with the rapidly developing
    activity of men in space, and accompanied by a contamination of the
    surrounding space by artificial debris. Besides artificial debris, in the
    vicinity of the Earth is moving a large number of natural celestial bodies:
    comets, mini-comets, asteroids, meteor streams with fragments of various
    sizes and chemical composition. Our activity in the observations
    concentrates in three directions: position observations of artificial
    objects on the geostationary orbit (GEO); photometric observations on GEO
    and LEO (low orbits); observations of natural near-Earth objects (NEO).
    Scientific investigations are carried out in the following directions:
    explosions of upper stages of rockets in LEO and GEO; solar radiation
    pressure and its influence on the evolution of orbits; space debris on GEO;
    natural objects' population in near-Earth space. (C) 2001 COSPAR. Published
