The spin rate is decreased in the first and second stages of the deployment, because the inertial momentum of the sail is increased. The motion of the main body and the membrane is checked by a sun sensor, a three-axis gyro, range rate, four monitor cameras, two separation cameras [13] and so on as shown in Fig. 12. 32 Osamu Mori et al.

IK KAROS Opeeration IKAR ROS was launched togetherr with AKATS SUKI aboard H-IIA F17 at 6:58:22 am oon May 21, 20 010 (Japan Standard Time) from the Tanegasshima Space Center.

Since the success of IKAROS and the selection and funding of the Sunjammer demonstration mission, the reality of solar sails has manifested in the Agency’s planning, and there are now numerous mission and project teams considering their use.
