[Thin film deployment type de-orbit mechanism (DOM1500)]
DOM is the abbreviation for De-Orbit Mechanism. It is a thin film deployment type de-orbit device for microsatellites, developed jointly by Nakashimada Engineering Works, Ltd. and Tohoku University. The model number “1500” refers to the size of the thin film. DOM causes a microsatellite to de-orbit quickly by deploying a thin film and thus increasing its atmospheric drag.
  • ・ Simple structure that deploys a thin film to increase atmospheric drag.


    ・ Variety of film sizes that fit satellites from 1U up to 50 cm class microsatellite.


    ・ Compact design that enables installation into small spaces.


  • Mass:
    1.0 kg
    Dimension:
    Diameter 110 mm x Height 73 mm
    Film Dimension:
    1500 mm square
    Power Supply:
    Power supplied from satellite’s primary battery (E.g. Nickle-hydridebattery,5V,2450mAh)
