Large Space Structures (LSS) GmbH was founded in 2012 by experts from the Technical University of Munich (TUM), Germany. We focus our efforts on the creation of large deployable space reflectors and other large space lightweight structures, as well as in-orbit mechanically reconfigurable reflectors. Our staff has collected long term experience in working on these products at different institutes of the Technical University of Munich and the Georgian Technical University (GTU), creating a strong and competitive base in this field. Working experience with the European Space Agency and European industrial partners in different projects is a valuable asset of our staff in developing large deployable reflector technologies in cooperation with other European companies primarily for the European market needs.
LSS staff has more than 25 years of working experience in the development of lightweight structures for space applications, especially in the field of large deployable space structures and deployable appendecies. Our expertise comprises
- Large deployable space reflectors, membrane direct radiating arrays, reflectarrays, large optical membrane telescopes, in-orbit mechanically reconfigurable surface reflectors, among others
- Design, analysis, manufacturing and testing of new composite and membrane materials and lightweight structures
- Multi-functional, smart, adaptive, morphing materials and structures
- Patents & patent applications on several of the above technologies
