AbstractABSTRACT: Deployable composite structures have the distinct advantage of minimizing weight and space consumed by satellites during launch. Standard conductive materials for antenna structures cannot function in the required strain levels for the deployable systems. A new material based on CNT sheets combined with novel resin technologies is proposed as a solution. BENEFIT: The resulting system will increase satellite efficiency and decrease the weight and consumed space of the payload.
