The paper, in the first part, presents general information about the CLEANSPACE project including the main drivers and requirements. Overall CLEANSPACE objective is to define a global architecture (including surveillance, identification and tracking) for an innovative ground-based laser solution which can remove hazardous medium debris around selected space assets. The CLEANSPACE project is realized by an European consortium in the frame of the European Commission Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The second contains estimations of velocity changes, perigee lowering and lifetime reducing for an exemplary objects for different parameters of the LDR system.
