Spacecraft Deployable Systems

While many spacecraft are decreasing in size, physics will maintain the demand for large aperture subsystems.  For that reason, SNC considers deployable structures to be a critical element in the future of microsatellite systems.  Our Jackscrew boom system utilizes high strength, high stiffness articulated truss elements that ensure low-risk linear deployment.  The structure and deployment system are readily integrated into mass and volume efficient super structures for planar arrays.  Meanwhile, our K-Truss booms are engineered with a strain-energy deployment system that reduces cost and is constructed with a non-conductive material that enables antenna integration.
