Modelling and Mission Analysis of Bare-Photovoltaic Tethers in Low Earth Orbit


Gonzalo Sánchez Arriaga (UC3M)


Bare-Photovoltaic Tethers provide extra power for on-board use and propellant-less in-orbit propulsion. This enhancement is useful for different scenarios such as deorbiting space debris, station-keeping and reboost maneuvers. They all will be integrated in the mission analysis software BETsMA v2.0.
