Identification of the Orbital Tether System Parameters for Small Subsatellites Deorbiting

Igor Sheynikov, Sergey Ishkov
Flat model of orbital tether system (OTS) with imponderable tether was utilized in this paper. Relay control law was proposed for OTS nominal deployment control. Obtained results afford to choose optimal nominal deployment and control parameters of OTS for a variety of mother satellite orbits.
