This presentation describes the results of concept studies on an upper stage monitoring system which acquires and downlinks data related with the attitude, the rotation rate etc. of an upper stage in orbit around the Earth as space debris. The feasibility of a small-sized ADR satellite, which accesses, captures and deorbits space debris, is also discussed. The conclusion of this report is that Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, L TD(MHI) will make a continuous effort to mitigate space debris, with our technological heritage of designing, manufacturing and operating space systems such as the H2A/H2B launch vehicles, the H-II Transfer Vehicle (HTV), and small-sized satellites.
