Electrodynamic Tether System for Propellantless De-Orbiting

Sonia Chalia, Manish Kumar Bharti


A key benefit of an electrodynamic tether system is the high peak power generation capability for a small impact in spacecraft mass and volume. By using electrodynamic drag to greatly increase the orbital decay rate, an electrodynamic tether system can remove spent or dysfunctional spacecraft from low Earth orbit rapidly and safely.
