ESA has made software tools available to ESA member state citizens

Hi all,

Maybe of interest to some of us.

ESA has just made some analytical software available to citizens of ESA member 
states via their Space Debris Portal:

I have no idea how useful it is for people on this list and have no knowledge of 
these software tools and have not tried it yet. It however concerns these tools:


MASTER (Meteoroid and Space Debris Terrestrial Environment Reference) allows to 
assess the debris or meteoroid flux imparted on a spacecraft on an arbitrary 
earth orbit.  MASTER also provides the necessary computational and data 
reference for DRAMA and needs to be installed before DRAMA is installed


DRAMA (Debris Risk Assessment and Mitigation Analysis) is a comprehensive tool 
for the compliance analysis of a space mission with space debris mitigation 
standards. For a given space mission, DRAMA allows analysis of:

     Debris and meteoroid impact flux levels (at user-defined size regimes)
     Collision avoidance manoeuvre frequencies for a given spacecraft and a 
project-specific accepted risk level
     Re-orbit and de-orbit fuel requirements for a given initial orbit and 
disposal scenario
     Geometric cross-section computations
     Re-entry survival predictions for a given object of user-defined components
     The associated risk on ground for at the resulting impact ground swath
