The full segmented SASA platform will be ideal for several classes of satellites. A scalable and modular system would help in providing precise and accurate ACS for any sensitive platform. These include space astrometry, interferometry based applications. Due to the mechanical simplicity of SASA (fewer failure modes), low power budget and insensitivity to space environment, it can be a favorable solution for deep space satellite missions. Ranging from applications to new frontier missions to small satellites for deep space exploration. In addition, SASA can enable cheaper precise and jitter free platforms to deploy passive/semi-active probes from mother-ships with a small enough deployment error ellipsoid for future missions.
The study of SASA platform can be used for the development of soft low power robotics, especially in areas where compliant structures are required (most Human Machine interaction robots). A reengineered concept could use a long SASA panel in the wind to generate electrical energy using wing flutter and other oscillatory forces (places where wind speed is not favorable for wind turbines). Other applications of SASA include usage of the actuation mechanism to produce fast reaction aerodynamic control surfaces (servo-aero-elasticity) for high speed aircrafts.
