Abstract:

Our innovation is a low-cost method for removing orbital debris. We propose to remove debris from medium and high Earth orbits, as well as from LEO, and do it much more cheaply than conventional rockets. Our approach uses a combination of propellantless and high-Isp propulsion and high-power solar arrays to drive a robotic vehicle with nets to capture debris objects and carry them to re-entry or to a safe storage orbit, all under positive ground control.
