A group of scientists from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has devised a plan that will use mini satellites to act as cops in space. The little satellites would be used to help control traffic in space and refine trajectories to prevent collisions. The scientist recently used a series of images that were taken over a 60-hour period from a ground-based satellite to prove you can refine the orbit of another satellite in low earth orbit.
