Light Sail Movement with Photon Energy; Solar Sail
The current technology needs to move on alternate energy due to lack of resources and environmental problems. Therefore, solar sails have become a major option for the current satellite missions. Solar sails work on renewable energy and have a long life time as they did not carry any fuel on board. The interest in developing the determined solar sail increased over recent years. The sail design was proposed in the 1970s but not implemented due to the lack of technology. In the early 2000s, the sails are launched into space by several space agencies. This study determines the different solar sail designs and their comparison to determine spin-stabilized sail as a desired one by the thermo-structural analysis. Also, the sail configuration and parameters, attitude controls, packing, and the active deployment demonstrator are determined.
