Deployable Composite Structures, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Deployable Composite Structures, Phase I
NASA is seeking innovative structure technologies that will advance expandable exploration space modules and surface based habitats. To address this need CTD has proposed to develop multi-functional, highly mass efficient deployable composite structures. These composite structures will build upon CTD's innovative Composite Rollable Extendible Slit-Tube Structures (CRESTS) and TEMBOREG shape memory composites. The deployable composite structures have much lower mass and part counts than corresponding mechanical deployable systems. These composite deployable structures can be configured to meet a variety of needs within Expandable Space Habitats, and significantly increase functionality. More »
