Solar Sail Membrane Testing and Design Considerations

Seefeldt, Patric and Steindorf, Lukas and Spröwitz, Tom (2014) Solar Sail Membrane Testing and Design Considerations. In: European Conference on Spacecraft Structures, Materials and Mechanical Testing. SSMET 2014, 01.-04. April 2014, Braunschweig, Deutschland.

Within the project Gossamer-1 a testing strategy for large deployable membranes has been developed and successfully implemented. The aim of the DLR Gossamer-1 mission is an in-orbit deployment of multifunctional ultra-lightweight deployable sail hardware as a feasibility demonstration. The presented work gives an overview of the ongoing efforts at DLRs Institute of Space Systems in Bremen to develop and qualify deployable membrane structures for solar sailing, thin film solar cells and for drag de-orbiting.
