Kvačová, Kristýna Kateřina ; Konečný, Pavel (referee) ; Petrásek, Miloslav (advisor)
The theoretical part of the diploma thesis focuses on the characterization of the artificial space debris in Earth's orbit. The methods of debris removal, the space debris mitigation guidelines, and related international documents are elaborated. In addition to, detection and monitoring of the orbital population are briefly described. The practical part of the thesis proposes a new method of debris removal which is aimed at CubeSat after mission ending in low earth orbit. The method consists of deorbiting maneuver, which is calculated, and the solid rocket motor for the maneuver performance. This includes the computation of dimensions of the solid rocket motor and the propellant configuration.
