Business Model for Orbital Maneuvering kit

Project description

A novel deorbit kit for satellites could soon hit the market

An electrodynamic tether is a long conductor, typically a tape of aluminium, attached to a spacecraft that carries an electric current and exchanges momentum with the Earth magnetosphere. The interaction between the current and the Earth magnetic field generates a Lorentz drag force on the tape that deorbits the spacecraft. An EU-funded project is currently developing a deorbit kit mounted on satellites that will be activated at the end of their life to ensure safe disposal after they complete their mission. The goal of the EU-funded BMOM project is to develop a business model for the deorbit kit to maximise its socio-economic impact and increase its competitiveness in the European space industry.
