  1. Affordable Demonstration of Very Flexible, Large Spacecraft Structures Control and Pointing

    SBC: CSA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The PowerSail is a new paradigm in space systems that offers significant performance and cost improvements for on-orbit power generation. The PowerSail will co-orbit in formation with a satellite, with flexible interconnects and a robotic arm managing thelink between the two structures. The research will produce key technologies that will enable realization of the PowerSail concept. By enabling ...

  2. SoftRide Separation System for Spacecraft

    SBC: CSA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Shock is a major problem for spacecraft, and is the largest dynamic load on spacecraft during launch on large launch vehicles. Shock to spacecraft during launch comes from two sources, the launch vehicle (fairing separation being one of the largest shocksources) and the spacecraft separation event. A whole-spacecraft shock isolation system will prevent shock produced by the launch vehicle from r ...
