Deployable booms have significant flight heritage and will have sustained prominence in future spacecraft design. Potential X-Boom applications include solar array systems, deployable Gossamer Structures (e.g. solar sails, sun shades, and deorbiting systems), antennas, and CubeSats.
X-Boom applications for commercial space and the DoD are equivalent to NASA. For commercial space, CubeSats are an emerging market. The inherent scalability of X-Boom could provide capability to CubeSats for the deployment of solar array systems, instruments, and antennas. Further, X-Boom can be deployed to establish a gravity gradient.
