Abstract—Every year the concentration of objects of space debris is steadily growing, which significantly complicates the conduct of both modern and future space missions using automatic, and especially manned space vehicles. To date, over 15,000 artificial objects and fragments larger than 5 cm have been recorded in near-Earth space. Therefore, the issues of cleansing outer space from objects of space debris of various sizes are quite relevant. In this paper, are considered questions use inflatable structures for deorbiting spacecraft, in order to avoid the formation of new space debris. At the end of the work, conclusions are drawn about the effectiveness using of such inflatable structures. 

Index Terms—space debris, deorbiting, disposal orbit, dynamic of motion, inflatable structures, braking device, orbital movement
