New activity - Inflatable structures for telecom satellites.
The need for ever-more powerful telecom satellites drives the development of the associated technologies. A key example is the need for lightweight, large systems such as solar arrays and radiators, usually deployed in-orbit using booms and masts made from rigid structures. An alternative strategy is the use of inflatable structures, where deployment is achieved via/through gas inflation. Such structures are considered very attractive owing to their high mechanical packing efficiency and low mass. For this reason, inflatable structures are potentially a key technology that could have a wide range of applications for future satellite communications missions.
ARTES 4S Strategic Programme Line ("Space systems for Safety and Security") has been created at the last Space 19+ ESA council held at Ministerial level. The aim was to cope with the need of specific efforts towards next generation secure SATCOM solutions designed to serve governmental needs and support critical infrastructures and applications.
