Abstract: Plans for proposed flight of the Small Expendable-tether Deployer System (SEDS) on a Delta II launch vehicle are discussed. The SEDS tether concept and mission requirements are outlined. Results are presented from calculations of the tether dynamics and computer modeling to determine tether behavior. The tether's thermal characteristics, electronics system, material, data collection procedure, payload, and orbital trace are described.
