Abstract
A number of space projects during the coming decade will use large lightweight deployable lattice-type structures as trusses, masts, or beams, for antennas, solar arrays, etc. This type of structure is not yet in wide use, and consequently there is little published information or experience with actual hardware. This report describes test and modelling experience for a representative structure of this type. The structure involved is a deployable, coilable, continuous longeron mast, manufactured by Astro Research Corporation under the trade name Astromast. TRUNCATED
