The Bare Electrodynamic Tethers Project


BETs is a research project funded by the European Commission FP7 aimed at developing an innovative technology for LEO Satellites deorbiting based in Electrodynamic tethers.

BETs encompasses an multinational excellence team to approach Electrodynamic tether propulsion technology in a unique multidisciplinary fashion covering topics like materials science, plasma physics, orbit dynamics, mechanics, electric driving control, etc. which will bridge the gap between concept and real Space applications.
