Abstract
NASA intends to place small spacecraft (<100kg) and very small spacecraft (<15kg) into a variety of orbits. Methods and technologies are needed to intentionally de-orbit these spacecraft at end of mission, or upon loss of control and function. CTD has developed a family of highly mass efficient Roll-Out De-Orbiting devices (RODEO). RODEO provides a dramatic increase in the deployed surface area, resulting in higher aerodynamic drag and significantly reduced time until satellite re-entry. RODEO's composite booms self-deploy with no external spacecraft power, and the inherent simplicity of RODEO results in extremely low costs, low mass, and low power.
