NASA, DOD, and commercial space enterprises fly a variety of spacecraft with a resulting risk of high velocity impacts with space debris and/or incoming particles from the cosmos. Impact location and damage assessment have long been a desirable capability for both manned and unmanned vehicles. NASA and our satellite customers have indicated that a system that detects and locates impacts can provide much needed information as to the subsequent management of remaining satellite resources to optimize the remaining capabilities of the spacecraft. Detailed data and analysis on the physics of the high speed energy transformations that occur in an HVI environment are critical to verification of high resolution models that attempt to predict HVI collisions with details of fracturing paths, and other material failure mechanisms that are used in the design of commercial and military structures. High resolution modeling has become a valuable tool in the design process in that it allows engineers to subject designs to harsh environments and examine the failure modes in detail in order to provide the basis of component re-design without the expense of destructive testing.
