The spin rate is decreased in the first and second stages of the deployment, because the inertial momentum of the sail is increased. The motion of the main body and the membrane is checked by a sun sensor, a three-axis gyro, range rate, four monitor cameras, two separation cameras [13] and so on as shown in Fig. 12. 32 Osamu Mori et al.

In fact, under current designs, nearly half of the orbiter mass is dedicated to returning samples to Earth and stopping the Earth-return propellant at Mars. By 20 Les Johnson et al. replacing the chemical propulsion system of the ERS with a solar sail, most, if not all, of this fuel is eliminated. This reduces the fuel mass of the earlier stages and can result in smaller spacecraft, fewer required launches, or both. The current MSR orbiter is planned to arrive two years ahead of the Mars ascent vehicle (MAV) and lander.
