baby step one... lets mark them with beacons as they go by
baby step two ... AI/robotic radar stations on the marked ones to find others... like a solar system wide sensor , mapping the stuff thats out there .
baby step three... robotic movers , that get the close ones and park them in orbits for reprocessing into space staion resupply and hard ware .
