Abstract

This paper presents an overview of the different gossamer sail flight projects being undertaken at the Surrey Space Centre. The missions consist of a 25 m2 solar sail to be launched in Q1 2014 (CubeSail), a gossamer deorbiter for future European space assets (DGOSS), a scalable sailcraft that will demonstrate satellite deorbiting in Low Earth Orbit (DeorbitSail), and a drag sail that uses inflatable and rigidizable technology to be flown as part of the QB50 mission (InflateSail). The key technologies currently being developed for each project will be summarized and the most relevant scientific results presented.
