Question on the databases and catalogues creation for supporting various space debris issues was discussed in the STSC Technical Report on Space Debris (A/AC/105/720) presented at the UNISPACE III. It is the very actual problem to create such information tools which would be accessible for wide international science community. The Space Council of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) had proposed at the end of the 2000 to the President of the RAS to establish special Center on accumulation, processing and analysis of scientific information on various space debris issues. According the special directive of the RAS President on Feb 28 the Center is to be based on existing infrastructure supported by the Ballistic Center of the Keldysh Institute of Applied Mathematics (KIAM). Information core of the Center is the Space Objects Data Catalogue.
