A dragsail is a thin-membrane deployable structure that greatly increases the frontal area of the system so that aerodynamic drag accelerates orbital decay.

Spinnaker1 Sail Deployment Test

The “Spinnaker” product line of dragsails utilizes standardized mechanical and electrical interfaces to the host satellite, allowing straightforward integration. Unlike propulsive deorbit systems that require operability of the host satellite, Vestigo dragsails ensure deployment and deorbit even if the host satellite is inoperative.
