Tether mechanism dynamic simulator
This equipment is a National Space Development Agency Tsukuba Space
Center production engineering division tip missions center micro space.
The laboratory was supplied in spring of 2002.
The research purpose supports the child satellite separated from the parent satellite by space by tether.
The diameter of about 0.2mm and expansion speed are 60 m/min with thread with special tether.
TDSM of a parent satellite takes charge of a ground examination. Incidentally a child satellite is called TRM.
TDSM equipped with the imitation ejection mechanism drives TRM to regulation speed by acceleration time 0.15sec.
Parts are noncommercial uses although TRM is vacuum specification as special correspondence.
The following is the photograph.
