Large deployable structures are a critical part of a number of space structures and systems, such as large reflectors, Earth observation antennas, radiators, sun shields and solar arrays.

In addition to providing a deployment function, the large space deployable structures can provide shape, stability and integrity for a spacecraft/structure subsystem throughout its mission.

The main objective of DEPLOYTECH is to advance the technology readiness level of space deployable technologies by qualifying their concepts and technologies for space use.
