This document is the result of an in depth study from the principles of orbital aerodynamics to the definition of requirements for a set of satellite platforms covering Earth Observation applications taking advantage of operating in Very Low Earth Orbit (VLEO) and making use of aerodynamic technologies.
- D4.1 Literature Review of ABEP systems (PDF, 1.83 MB)
The report aims to support the development of system models for VLEO platforms by identifying the state of the art and trends in technology developments for atmosphere-breathing electric propulsion (ABEP) development. A literature review of ABEP system studies is presented, beginning with the concept of ABEP, its advantages and intended application.
