Design method of cable-mesh antenna for space use
What is it about?
Cable-mesh antennas have an advantage on weight reduction. We have shown new conceptual cable network design method for forming parabolic surface with low strain energy.
Why is it important?
Instead of cables, compression members are installed at rim at the surface so that strain energy of the cable network is decreased. Consequently, a weight reduction is possible for the support stricture.
