dc.description.abstractIn this project a launching mechanism for space debris capture was designed, built, and tested. Space debris capture mechanisms capture space debris and then deorbits with the debris. If the space debris issue is left unchecked, it will spiral out of control and pose a risk to infrastructure and astronauts. This project aims to create a prototype to test centrifugal force for spin deployed nets. This prototype was designed from the inside out starting with the net. Some FEA analysis was conducted to help with the design process. The prototype was then constructed and tested for deployment. The prototype was successful in spin deployment at roughly 12 rad/s. All requirements of the project were met except for the actuated linear deployment velocity of 1 m/s.
