A few questions about propulsion and orbit control technology.
Will the outernet satellites use tethers or other forms of propellant-less propulsion?
Tethers: e.g. the Momentum-eXchange/Electrodynamic-Reboost (MXER) tether system.
Tethers for orbit control, going to higher or lower orbit.
The tethers can also be used at the end of life to make the satellite leave orbit much faster than letting the orbit decay and pose a hazard to other satellites.

If yes, will tethers be used for these purposes?
There are already tethers designed specifically for cubesats.
Will the team use solar sails?:
(For anyone not familiar with solar sails, check out the wikipedia article about them.)
If yes, for what tasks?
Will there be collision avoidance or formation flight by propellant-less systems?

Will the team pursue other methods of propellant less propulsion for the satellites?
