Targets for space debris demonstration mission.
Inflate a balloon which acts as a deorbiting technology and provides a larger target area. A net is then ejected from the RemoveDEBRIS microsatellite when DS-1 is at 7 m distance. Once the net hits the target, deployment masses at the end of the net wrap around and entangle the target and motor driven winches reel in the neck of the net preventing re-opening of the net. The CubeSat is then left to deorbit at an accelerated rate due to the large surface area of the balloon.
During the net demonstration, two supervision cameras record images which are downloaded afterwards to ground to assess the success of the net demonstration.
