Mr. Johnson coordinates NASA’s orbital debris research with similar research conducted by other US agencies, other national space agencies, and international organizations.  Mr. Johnson serves as the head of the US delegation to the Inter-Agency Space Debris Coordination Committee (IADC), comprised of the world’s 12 leading space agencies, and serves as the US expert at United Nations in matters concerning orbital debris.  He is recognized internationally as an authority on orbital debris and foreign space systems and is the author of eighteen books and more than 200 papers on these topics during the past 32 years.
