Abstract: To ensure the safety and sustainability of space activities, space objects should be deorbited at the end of their mission life. However, such an exercise is not without safety risks, given the large number of new satellites expected to be launched and deorbited in the coming years. A space traffic management and coordination system that can facilitate the large-scale deorbiting of space objects is essential.
