The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) has been investigating an active space debris removal system that employs highly efficient electrodynamic tether (EDT) technology for orbital transfer. To realize the active debris removal system, JAXA plans a test flight experiment of EDT utilizing the H-II Transfer Vehicle (HTV, Kounotori), which is called Kounotori Integrated Tether Experiments (KITE). In the KITE mission, 720m-long tether is deployed from HTV. A passive braking mechanism is utilized for smooth termination of tether deployment. The braking force and braking distance must be evaluated for estimating the behavior of on-orbit tether deployment. On-ground tests for braking mechanism and numerical simulation of tether deployment are conducted in order to evaluate the characteristic. In this paper, development status of the braking mechanism is presented.
