A plan and initial progress towards a program of fundamental research on the modeling of hazardous asteroid mitigation is described. This work focuses on computational modeling of outcomes from previously developed asteroid mitigation techniques. Our goal is to evaluate these techniques accounting for the expected and predicted range of asteroid geophysical and dynamical properties. This work defines a necessary and fundamental step for the design and evaluation of future mitigation experiments and attempts. It also enables the identification of necessary technology for the detection of mitigation outcomes to use as a fundamental metric in our models and evaluations.
