The development of Dimensionally-Stable Structural Space Cable has numerous applications to both current and future NASA development efforts. Most notably, this component is of critical importance for a starshade (external occulter) conceptual development effort currently underway at JPL. Other applications related to large deployable truss structures requiring tight packaging constraints, low response to thermal gradients and linear precision at low operational tensions.
Roccor has received interest from several commercial entities for Dimensionally-Stable Structural Space Cable. Of particular note, high precision and thermally stable wire is being actively sought out to support development of high gain, deployable mesh antennas. Other terrestrial applications to support precision structures and optical surfaces are of interest as well.
