DragEN De-Orbit Tether

Ensure a clean end-off-life of your satellite with our simple and effective satellite de-orbit system.


Simple and Versatile

DragEN is a simple, but highly versatile tether deployer used for responsible de-orbit of nanosatellites at the end of their mission life.

A natural roll-out from deployment results in a high-reliability system with few moving parts. We use high-strength Al 6061 Aluminium, and are compatible with any small satellite.

DragEN can scale to 50 kg.

Need some last-minute juice?

A modified, electrodynamic tether can allow for up to 330mW of power once deployed, giving the final two weeks of your spacecraft the redundancy it needs to get you your data.

Not only does the DragEN tether improve power availability, but enables plasma research capabilities with proper electronics connected.
