Modeling and Mission Analysis of Low Work-Function Tethers

Date of Defence: 30 November 2022


Gonzalo Sánchez-Arriaga (UC3M)


A new approach in numerical part of the kinetic model of emissive probe is developed which speeds up the code and leverages an opportunity to construct a broad database with Current-Voltage characteristics. The extensive database is integrated in a tether flight simulator to determine the performance of Low Work-Function tethers in Low-Earth-Orbit for deorbiting and re-boost scenarios and the mission analysis is carried out as well.
