Computer simulation of a new deployment system for precise solid space reflector
September 20, 2022
To create next-generation large space radio telescopes operating in the short-wavelength region of the spectrum, it is necessary to ensure the high accuracy of the reflecting surface of the main mirror of the instrument and the high rigidity of the open reflector. The use of solid-state transformable petal mirrors is considered as one of the possible ways to solve emerging problems. The paper describes a new scheme for opening a petal mirror and presents the results of computer simulation of the deployment kinematics in the SolidWorks package.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
