Low cost development of active debris removal (ADR) systems is required to realize the sustainable debris remediation strategy. An electrodynamic tether (EDT) is a promising candidate for the deorbit propulsion device of the ADR systems because of its advantages such as the absence of consumables, the absence of thrust vectoring, and the easy attachment to debris. In this presentation, the pros and cons of the EDT, its development scenario and technological issues for the ADR application are to be described.
