The aim of the GOSSAMER-1 mission is an in-orbit deployment of versatile ultra-lightweight deployable sail hardware as a feasibility demonstration. The presented work focuses on the design and manufacturing of the sail membrane for GOSSAMER-1. The work has reached a preliminary design status which shall be presented in this paper. It includes mechanical analysis as well as a description of manufacturing strategies at the department of System Conditioning at the DLR Institute of Space Systems in Bremen.
