Deployable Composite Structures
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 TEMBO<SUP>REG</SUP> 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.
