Abstract: Gossamer space structures are relatively large, flimsy, and lightweight. As a result, they are more easily affected or degraded by space thermal environments compared to other space structures. This study examines the structural integrity of a three-meeter Ka-band inltable/self-rigidizable reflectarray antenna under space thermal environments.
