Abstract
Electrodynamic tethers (EDTs) have been proposed as one tool for space debris removal thanks to their inherently propellantless modality of operation. For the tether current collection the bare tether concept has been shown to offer the best performance in terms of deorbiting capability per unit of tether mass. The design of the bare tether has not been optimized and often the simulation results are not reproducible. In this article we consider optimally sized bare electrodynamic tethers with tape cross section attached to existing space debris provided by the DISCOS database of the European Space Agency.
