The results of the VLBI method application in the world-new VLBI-location method are described. The method allows Earth-based sounding of planets, asteroids, “space debris” objects and reception of echo signals with the radio telescope network in VLBI-mode. The precise trajectory determination of the potentially Earth-dangerous asteroids and fragments of “space debris” is an important applied aspect of the investigations carried out. 9 VLBI-location experiments have been made with the use of the RT-70-based planet locator of the National Space Facility Control and Test Center (NSFCTC) in Evpatoria and through the international cooperation with the VLBI-stations of the “Low-frequency VLBI net (LFVN)”.
