A test deployment has been undertaken for a 5 m diameter antenna, which is designed for orbital operations.
LSS completed manufacturing and assembly of the 5 m deployable mesh reflector demonstrator (ESA project SCALABLE)
This news posting is written by esa.int A whole new kind of large space antenna has been tested in realistic space conditions. This 5 m-diameter reflector seen being lowered into ESA’s Large Space Simulator appears translucent because it is a few tenths of a mm thick – thinner than a piece of card. “This marked…
LSS started a new ESA project “Advanced techniques for mesh reflector with improved radiation pattern performance” (AMPER) as a prime contractor, subcontracting to TICRA, Denmark 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 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
