While many spacecraft are decreasing in size, physics will maintain the demand for large aperture subsystems. For that reason, TESBL considers deployable structures to be a critical element in the future of microsatellite systems.
Our system utilizes high strength, high stiffness articulated truss elements that ensure low-risk linear deployment. The structure and deployment system are readily integrated into mass and volume efficient superstructures for planar arrays.
Meanwhile, our K-Truss booms are engineered with a strain-energy deployment system that reduces cost and is constructed with a non-conductive material that enables antenna integration.
