This chapter is devoted to the probabilistic risk analysis of collision of satellites with space debris. The uncertainty and random space-time characteristics of dynamic space objects are researched for the rationale of preventive measures for space systems and technologies. The proposed approach is illustrated by analyzing space debris and their distribution on satellite orbits. The actuality is confirmed by many dangerous convergences of controlled satellites and fragments of the old objects that have been discarded and transformed into uncontrolled debris. The research demonstrates a possibility of probabilistic modeling allows calculating preventive measures for avoiding collisions.
