Abstract

The exploration of Jupiter and the Jovian system is severely restricted by the scarcity of power, the most limiting factor of scientific missions. Electrodynamic tethers has been proposed as an efficient solution to provide power to the spacecraft. Furthermore, they are pointed out as suitable propulsive devices to perform orbit manoeuvres in the Jovian world. In this paper, the Jovian capture of a spacecraft using a self-balanced electrodynamic tether is analyzed in detail. Different models of current collection are used. A dynamic description of the evolution from the arrival hyperbolic to the final ¿captured¿ orbit is carried out. 2
