Abstract [en]

A manufacturing method for tape springs in a deployment system for a nano satellite was developed. The system relies on composite tape springs for deployment force and post deployment structural integrity, and has been proposed and used in several previous nano satellites. The tape spring was made of preimpregnated glass fiber weave. Initial test verifying the tape springs functions have been made and proven successful. The tape springs have also been tested in an engineering model of the satellite and are able to perform an adequate deployment.

Further tests, especially long time storage are needed the tape spring solution for the deployment system looks promising.
