Shape estimation of space debris is an important task in evaluating its trajectory evolution and collision probability with resident objects in space. This paper shows the magnitude and rotation of space debris can be estimated by investigating the Doppler shift with a Single Range Doppler Interferometry (SRDI) method. The theory of SRDI method is discussed and its usefulness is confirmed by numerical simulations. Furthermore, fluctuation of Doppler shift of known space debris were successfully observed by the MU radar of Kyoto University and the size and spin rate of some space debris were successfully estimated.
