The main focus of this work is to highlight the main parameters driving the future evolution of the debris environment, in presence of the planned LEO mega constellation of satellites. First, in order to identify the most important parameters that are actually driving the evolution of the environment and in an effort to discriminate between possibly equivalent scenarios, we applied tools from the statistical sciences, namely the Wilcoxon signed rank test, a non-parametric test which allows us, given two samples, to assess whether their population mean ranks differ. Then, by means of a simplified model of the constellation building and managing, we define an inde...
