A Low Cost Active Debris Removal Demonstration Mission (REMOVEDEBRIS)

Start date: Nov 11, 2013, End date: Nov 11, 2017,

A huge amount of debris has progressively been generated since the beginning of the space era. Most of the objects launched into space are still orbiting the Earth and today these object and their by-products represent a threat both in space and on Earth. In Space, debris lead to collisions and therefore to damages to operational satellites. For both issues, a credible solution has emerged over th ...

REsettable Hold-Down and Release ACTuator (REACT)

Start date: Jan 1, 2015, End date: Oct 31, 2017,

Unrestricted access to Space low shock non-explosive actuators has been identified as an urgent action by the European Commission, the European Space Agency and the European Defence Agency. Project REACT proposal is oriented to permit the unrestricted access of Europe to the technology of high reliable non-explosive actuators based on SMA (Shape Memory Alloy) technology. The REACT (REsettable Hold ...

Payload Universal Geostationary Interface (PLUGIN)

Start date: Jan 1, 2015, End date: Jun 30, 2016,

Getting flight heritage for innovative space technologies can be a challenge. While options exist for flying in Low Earth Orbit, few opportunities exist for flying outside the Van Allen belts, especially on the Geostationary orbit where are located the majority of commercial satellites.The PLUGIN project, or PayLoad Universal Geostationary Interface, aims at developing an open standard for hosting ...

De-Orbiting of Satellites using Solar Sails (DEORBIT SAIL)

Start date: Mar 1, 2011, End date: Oct 31, 2014,

The goal of this project is to develop and flight test a novel, low cost/riskdeorbiting device based on a 25-m squared Solar Sail with a total mass (including the satellite platform) of 3 kg. The approach will be to modify Solar Sail deployment technology for use as a satellite and/or rocket upper stage deorbiting system. The effectiveness of such deorbiting device is predicted to be high at altit ...
