Although the probability of nuclear powered satellite re-entries is small, the present guidebook was prepared to assist States in planning for possible re-entry events and to provide international consensus guidance for responding to such a situation. In particular, this document provides guidance for specific actions to be taken from the time of the announcement of an impending re-entry event through the locating, monitoring and recovery phases.
