Title:
Deployable Structures in the CubeSat Program MOVE 
Abstract:
This paper investigates the utilization of deployable and expandable structures for communication purposes and solar power generation on CubeSats. We present the design and on-orbit results of the flight-proven solar-panel release mechanism of the first satellite of Technische Universität München First-MOVE, as well as the preliminary design of a solar panel deployment mechanism based on smart memory alloys for the second satellite MOVE II. Preliminary studies on a CFRS (carbon fibre reinforced...    »
