Russia proposed to create a warning system for the fall of space debris

Russian engineers have proposed to create a system that will notify about the time and place of the fall of space debris on the Earth. Specialists of one of the research and production corporations propose to equip the stages of launch vehicles, booster blocks and satellites with corner reflectors.

In total, you need 4 of them per rocket. This will add 40 grams to the starting weight. Now engineers are trying to negotiate with Roscosmos on the installation of their invention on spacecraft.

The system of corner reflectors will help determine the moment of de-orbit of those parts on which it is installed. She also predicts with high accuracy the point of impact on Earth. This will help prevent man-made disasters associated with the fall of large fragments of space technology.
