Abstract
A FLIGHT EXPERIMENT PLANNING STUDY OF AN INFLATABLE SOLAR CONCENTRATOR IS PROPOSED. A LARGE SOLAR CONCENTRATOR SYSTEM IS INTENDED FOR EVENTUAL APPLICATION AS THE COLLECTOR FOR THE SOLAR ROCKET. THIS STUDY WILL DEFINE THE FLIGHT TEST HARDWARE AND PERFORMANCE REQUIREMENTS OF A SUBSCALE SOLAR CONCENTRATOR SYSTEM (4-METER DIAMETER) THAT WILL PROVE THE FEASIBILITY OF CONSTRUCTING AND DEPLOYING IN SPACE LARGE SYSTEMS (35-METER DIAMETER).
