Space debris protection for a reusable orbital transfer vehicleThe protection of a reusable transfer vehicle from space debris is discussed. The results of a debris protection analysis are given. It was concluded that a shielding thickness of 0.62mm (24 mils) equivalent aluminum was needed when using a good double wall design. An additional 0.43 mm (18 mils) of shielding was needed during on-orbit storage time between flights.
