Welcome to Large Space Structures

The company Large Space Structures (LSS) has been founded in order to focus effort on creation of large deployable space reflectors and other large space lightweight structures, as well as in-orbit mechanically reconfgurable reflectors. Having collected long term experience in working on deployables at different institutes of TUM and GTU, LSS creates a strong competitive base in this field. Working experience with the European Space Agency and European industrial partners in different projects is a valuable asset of the LSS staff.

We are developing large deployable reflector technology in cooperation with other European companies primarily for the European market needs.

We strongly believe we will turn the image above into an actual photo from orbit as seen below.

Successful European Reflector Technology Demonstration

On Nov. 15, 2016, LSS has sucessfully demonstrated a Large Deployable Reflector at ESTEC/ESA during the 37th Antenna Workshop on Large Deployable Antennas.

LSS has fully developed and built this demonstrator in the scope of the ESA project SCALABLE (prime contractor: HPS GmbH). ESA announced TRL 5.

LSS has been awarded the EC project LEA (Large European Antenna) in a consortium of 16 European companies from 6 nations led by HPS. The project aims towards European non-dependence in large deployable reflectors. The consortium will develop a flight-ready 6m deployable reflector antenna, ready for launch from 2021. More details of this for future telecommunication, science missions and Earth observation important project can be found in the press release.


LSS completed manufacturing and assembly of the 5 m deployable mesh reflector demonstrator (ESA project SCALABLE)

LSS started a new ESA project "Advanced techniques for mesh reflector with improved radiation pattern performance" (AMPER) as a prime contractor, subcontracting to TICRA, Danemark and Space Engineering, Italy


LSS has successfully finished work on shape accuracy improvements on the "Ultra-Rapid Deployable Antenna". Consequently, RF measurements performed by HPS GmbH returned very good results.

LSS started working on shape accuracy improvment of the lightweight backpack deployable antenna in the scope of the ESA project "Ultra-Rapid Deployable Antenna" contracting HPS GmbH, Germany

LSS started a new ESA project on large aperture antennas and associated reflector requirements contracting Space Engineering, Italy

LSS is part of the organization committee of the international scientific conference on Advanced Lightweight Structures and Reflector Antennas to be held in Tbilisi, Georgia in October 1 - 3, 2014


LSS received a new ESA project on "Innovative Scalable Large Deployable Antenna Reflectors" contracting HPS GmbH, Germany
