Instrumentation Boom


Product Description

Scalable to Multiple Platforms

Primary benefits of this Boom technology include mission implementation on smaller satellite platforms. Enabling missions on smaller platforms reduces mission implementation costs and schedules, and potentially supports disaggregation and resiliency across a broad range of applications. This technology also serves as a building block for other deployable systems including solar arrays and antennas, enabling larger aperture and power on smaller spacecraft. This Boom technology is scalable to a variety of sizes.

Key characteristics are:

  • Deployed length up to 10 meters
  • Mass <1kg
  • Stows in 1U CubeSat volume or less
  • Thermally stable
  • Low coefficient of thermal expansion
  • Stiffness >0.1 Hz
