抄録

A solar sail is one of propulsion systems for near future interplanetary mission, which uses solar pressure for thrust by reflecting sunlight with very large membrane. We investigate the solar sail as a candidate of engineering test satellite. In order to verify the solar sail design, a deployment experiment is needed, but it is difficult to perform an experiment of large membrane on the ground because of its lower stiffness. To solve this problem, we plan to use a sounding rocket. In this paper we describe our study and plan.
