AbstractIn the article the problem of principally possible to measure parameters of space debris using information about spacecraft (SC) solar batteries (SB) power decrease at the moment of solid particles impact is discussed. It is represented the numerical data about SB reaction onto particles impacts which have different velocities, sizes and mass density. Basing on these data, particles flow parameters, which can be measured with the help of SB are determined. The problem deals with restore of function of distribution for space debris particle on the SC orbit is formulated.
