Electrodynamic Tether

Electrodynamic Tether

Developing a path to a cleaner space environment, our Electrodynamic Tether (EDT) system represents a leap in sustainable space debris management. This innovative solution features a 3000m-long insulated aluminum tether and a flexible net-like capture mechanism for over 90% power conversion efficiency and effective debris control in low-Earth orbit. Seamlessly integrating with CubeSat platforms (such as 3U and 6U), our EDT system adheres to International Space's stringent standards, offering a secure method for controlled space debris deorbiting. Embodying our commitment to pioneering aerospace solutions, the EDT system is a testament to our dedication to ensuring a safer orbital space for future generations.
