Have any analysis been done using 2 or more devises above to function as a satellite where 1 alone would not to maintain orbit without propellants?
Will this system or one with a different configuration then the pictures below - if it works - be more reliable, cheaper, or last longer?
I will try to expand on the 2nd picture below on how a satellite may use two or more propellant free devices together:
The long pole would be weighted with dynamic solar vanes at end of the pole to exercise the gravity gradient and radiation pressure together as an active stabilizer while gathering energy as an electrodynamic tether. There could be solar sails at higher altitudes GEO, but this problem is in LEO so only vanes are used to stabilize.
This question asked about quadrupole moment(thanks Uhoh) and could provide the propulsion. By using the bulge as a gravity gradient on a polar orbit of the Earth or possibly in an elliptical equatorial orbit using the gravity gradient through proximity to the Earth 1st picture just below the satellite provide forward momentum by disturbing the weight along the pole along a gravity.
