Abstract

NETT (New Electrodynamic Tether Technology) is an experiment proposed to ESA in 1991 as part of the Columbus Precursor Flights. It was originally intended to fly as an exposed payload in the Shuttle cargo bay. The main purpose was to demonstrate the electrodynamical capabilities of the innovative "bare tether" concept. The proposed conceptual design was recommended by a Scientific Panel of ESA, meeting in Heidelberg in March 1992. Unfortunately, the Precursor Flights have all but been scuttled, particularly as far as exposed payloads are concerned. The experiment, horever, is being considered in accomodation studies (APLSS, PIERS) for the European modulus of the future Space Station. Additionally, it might be possible to fly the bare tether in a Russian spacecraft.
