Research and Markets: Dynamics of Tethered Satellite Systems


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of Woodhead Publishing Ltd's new book "Dynamics of Tethered Satellite Systems" to their offering.

Aimed at engineering students and professionals working in the field of mechanics of space flight, this book examines space tether systems - one of the most forward thinking directions of modern astronautics. The main advantage of this technology is the simplicity, profitability and ecological compatibility: space tethers allow the execution of various manoeuvers in orbit without costs of jet fuel due to the use of gravitational and electromagnetic fields of the Earth.

This book will acquaint the reader with the modern state of the space tether's dynamics, with specific attention to the research projects of the nearest decades. The book presents the most effective mathematical models and the methods used for the analysis and prediction of space tether systems' motion; attention is also given on the influence of the tether on spacecraft's motion, to emergencies and chaotic modes.

Key Topics Covered:

- Space tether systems in astronautics

- Mathematical models of space tether systems

- Motion of a satellite with an attached tether system

- Delivery of payload from orbit by the instrumentality of a space tether system

- Space tether systems directed along a local vertical

- Chaotic motion of an elastic space tether system.
