The Terminator Tape™ Deorbit Modules are compact, lightweight modules that enable your small satellite to comply with post-mission orbital lifetime restrictions with a minimal mass, volume, footprint, cost, and risk impacts to your program.
Upon command from your spacecraft, or from an optional battery-powered timer module, the Terminator Tape opens and deploys a long, thin conductive tape. The tape interacts with the environment in Earth orbit to induce increased drag on the spacecraft, hastening its orbital decay. Tethers Unlimited, Inc. has flight-heritage Terminator Tape modules sized for CubeSats, NanoSats, and Small MicroSats.
