Abstract

An initial prototype of the Self-deployable Deorbiting Space Structure (SDSS) for semi-controlled debris removal was launched in 2014. The SDSS module consists of 3 main systems, i.e. the Drag Sail Unit (DSU), the Release Unit (RU) and the Housing Unit (HU). In the redesign, a storage lid is introduced whereby the folded drag sail is completely separated from the HU during the release process. During the research, an updated version of the SDSS version is made for CubeSat. The prototype is for a CubeSat which will be scalable.
