Abstract

In the present technology of satellites, Satellites are highly demanded by their utility in diversified applications. For these applications, a million dollars of expenditure have been incurred per year for developing and launching the satellites. This ranges from a minimum of 75 million dollars to a maximum of 1.5 billion dollars by different countries with a life span of satellites from a few months to 10 years. The short comes of this life span due to the fuel consumption of satellites. These problems in terms of increasing the life span have been answered in the year 8 July 2011 by NASA by introducing different concepts of refueling techniques. These techniques incur 16 percentage of total satellite cost on average to enhance the life span of existing satellites. In this paper, we performed a comparative study of different refueling techniques with their basic features with the introduction of organic polymers which involves polymers structure, power generation, and thruster capabilities. This comparative analysis has been suggested the best possibilities to increase satellite lifespan and save the launching costs.
