SCALE: A Scaleable Wire Boom System
2002 (English)In: Smaller Satellites: Bigger Business? Concepts, Applications and Markets for Micro/Nanosatellites in a New Information World / [ed] M. Rycroft, N. Crosby, Springer Netherlands, 2002, 355-356 p.Conference paper (Other academic)
The SCALE wire boom is a compact wire boom unit designed mainly for scientific spin-stabilized satellites. The boom unit provides storage and deployment of a wire boom (length 5–50 m) and a probe (diameter up to about 100 mm). The wire is both a boom and a supplier of the electrical connections between the probe at the end of the wire and the experiment unit in the spacecraft body. The SCALE wire boom is unique because its volume and weight are scaleable with respect to the required boom length and probe diameter.
