Abstract
"Spacecraft require a variety of separation and release devices to accomplish mission-related functions. Composite Technology Development, Inc. and Starsys Research Corporation propose to develop and demonstrate an innovative, non-pyrotechnic, shocklessretention and release device called the Shockless Thermally Actuated Release Nut (STAR Nut). Reducing shock-induced release and separation loads dramatically lowers the overall cost of spacecraft design, testing, and operation. The proposed device willhave broad applicability to military, scientific and commercial spacecraft."
