An analysis of possibility of the use of effect of dispersion is conducted, namely, the Rayleigh dispersion for determination of space debris. It is found that starting from the dependence of effective surface reflecting in the region of the Rayleigh dispersion on a wavelength, there is a real possibility to determine geometrical sizes of small objects of space debris.
