Deployable structures development

  • Conducted multibody dynamics, kinematics, friction analysis and sized the linear actuators based on kinematics analysis studies
  • Design and mechanical analysis of an innovative 4m diameter deployable antenna structure
  • Was manufactured as part of an ESA technology demonstrator project
  • Demonstrated competitiveness over existing solutions w.r.t. mass, stowage efficiency, simplicity & cost
  • Sized and designed the CFRP structure
  • Conducted multibody dynamics, kinematics, friction analysis and sized the linear actuators based on analysis
  • Have built the breadboard model, tested and reported the finding
