Experiments and simulation of a net closing mechanism for tether-net capture of space debris
This research addresses the design and testing of a debris containment system for use in a tether-net approach to space debris removal. The tether-net active debris removal involves the ejection of a net from a spacecraft ...
Energy and momentum analysis of the deployment dynamics of nets in space
In this paper, the deployment dynamics of nets in space is investigated through a combination of analysis and numerical simulations. The considered net is deployed by ejecting several corner masses and thanks to momentum ...
