ABSTRACT: The DLR Institute of Structural Mechanics is developing ultralightweight deployable CFRP Booms within the scope of the joint DLR/ESA Solar Sail technology demonstration . After the functional performance of the design was proven during a successful demonstration under simulated 0g-environment on ground at the end of 1999, the concept is being further developed with the aim of an application under environmental space conditions. The refinement of the boom analysis methods is one main objective because of its importance for the overall lightweight design. Additionally, probabilistic design features were applied to both the design of the booms at subsystem level and the Solar Sail at system level as an adequate method of putting the lightweight philosophy into practice. Several development tests ranging from material investigations to boom component tests under simulated space conditions were conducted. Meanwhile, an alternative boom deployment concept has been developed and patented.
