AbstractCNES, the French Space Agency, has been proactive on the question of orbital debris for more than 30 years now. The presentation will detail the status of the various actions led currently in this domain: - Observation, both optical and radar, enable France to elaborate its own space objects catalog, fundamental for all the collision avoidance activity, - These collision avoidance activities are an important part of the operational task of CNES, aimed at protecting not only our satellites but also several other commercial ones, - Hyper Velocity Impact tests are performed to optimize the resilience of space objects to small debris collisions, - Mitigation rules are a fundamental activity, both in house and in international for a, IADC, ECSS, ISO; France is the first country having a dedicated law, applicable since 2010, - These rules are backed by significant .simulation studies, testing various scenarios, propagating the orbital population in the future to check the efficiency of proposed measures and influence our work at international level, - End of Life operations, both in LEO and in GEO, enable us to comply with the mitigation rules, - In this frame, dedicated tools enable us to verify the compliance with mitigation rules, such as survivability at reentry, demisability with dedicated designs, passivation, optimization of deorbitation strategies ... - Preparation of future is important, with the risk of having to perform Active Debris Removal; in this domain, studies with the major French industrials have been led, driving potential solutions which will soon be tested in orbit, - Last, the "non technical" domains are important, mainly the business plan over the ADR, but also the political aspects, legal and insurance; international cooperation is a must, for this international problem!
