Final Flight / Science Report
Due: 12/08/2017
Soft-shell structures have flexible exteriors that can be expanded once in orbit; their capability of being stored in a compact form optimizes volume while minimizing mass. Current expandable soft-shell structures tend to be single use and are not capable of folding back into the organized and space-efficient form in which they were initially launched. This could be made possible by folding the structure using an origami technique called Miura. Project Miura will controllably extend, sustain, and retract a soft-shell structure multiple times while recording and monitoring the process in order to assess the viability of reusable, collapsible structures for space flight. Similar techniques could be adapted for cost-efficient spacecraft habitats or antennas. HASP affords Miura the opportunity to test the soft-shell structure’s integrity and durability in a harsh, near-space environment. The Miura team will will be made up of undergraduate engineering students, including the project manager, systems engineers, and team leads, with a faculty member from the Colorado Space Grant Consortium.
