|Abstract: ||Future NASA missions require long, ultra-lightweight booms to enable solar sails, large sunshields, and other gossamer-type spacecraft structures. The space experiment discussed in this paper will flight validate the non-traditional ultra lightweight rigidizable, inflatable, isogrid structure utilizing graphite shape memory polymer (GR/SMP) called UltraBoom™. The focus of this paper is the analysis of the 3-m ground test article. The primary objective of the mission is to show that a combination of ground testing and analysis can predict the on-orbit performance of an ultra lightweight boom that is scalable, predictable, and thermomechanically stable|
