Title: Elimination of space debris and objects of natural origin by laser radiation

We discuss the application of ground-based repetitively pulsed, high-frequency DF-laser systems and space-based Nd : YAG-laser systems for elimination of space debris and objects of natural origin. We have estimated the average power level of such systems ensuring destruction of space debris and similar objects. (laser applications)
