Title (EN) SELF-DEPLOYABLE DEORBITING SPACE STRUCTURE
(FR) STRUCTURE SPATIALE DE DÉSORBITATION AUTO-DÉPLOYABLE
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention relates to a method and a system to facilitate deorbiting of satellites from Low Earth Orbit (LEO). The Self - deployable Deorbiting Space Structure (SDSS) (18) of the invention attached to a satellite (20) is deformed into a stressed configuration so as to store strain energy on Earth. The strain energy is released in space producing a rapid deployment of the SDSS which increase the surface area of the satellite and in turn increases the aerodynamic drag colliding with air molecules in the residual atmosphere of Earth inducing variations in the satellite orbit.
(FR) La présente invention se rapporte à un procédé et à un système permettant de faciliter la désorbitation de satellites d'une orbite terrestre basse (LEO). La structure spatiale de désorbitation auto-déployable (SDSS) (18) de l'invention fixée à un satellite (20) se déforme en une configuration tendue de manière à stocker l'énergie de déformation sur Terre. L'énergie de déformation est relâchée dans l'espace produisant un déploiement rapide de la SDSS qui augmente la superficie du satellite et augmente à son tour la traînée aérodynamique entrant en collision avec les molécules d'air de l'atmosphère résiduelle de la Terre, entraînant des variations de l'orbite de satellite.
