초록

Electrochromic devices are applied to selected areas on a spacecraft. Radiant energy characteristics of the electrochromic devices are altered by applying appropriate electrical excitation signals to the devices to create a force on the spacecraft due to light impinging on the devices sufficient to alter the orientation thereof or maintain it under the action of external disturbance forces or torques.

대표
청구항

A method for altering the orientation of a spacecraft during flight, said method comprising: securing at lease one electrochromic device onto at least one surface of the spacecraft; and applying electrical excitation to the electrochromic device to cause a change in its radiant energy characteristics to create a controllable variable force on the spacecraft due to light impinging on the device sufficient to alter the orientation thereof.
