RemoveDEBRIS platform

The RemoveDEBRIS mission will perform a number of active space debris removal technology demonstrations, testing novel technologies, representative of an operational scenario during a low-cost mission.
 
SSTL has designed and manufactured the Remove Debris satellite platform, based on the SSTL-42, hosting the payloads for use in the debris removal demonstrations. These payloads, or technical content within them, have been produced by mission partners Airbus, ArianeGroup, CSEM, Inria, ISIS, SSC, and Stellenbosch University. Remove Debris is scheduled for launch in Q2 2018 from the International Space Station, with launch service interface and launch provision by NanoRacks and NASA respectively.
 
The Remove Debris mission has received funding from the European Commission. Specifically, the research leading to these results has received funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement #607099.
