Large Area Deployable Space Structures Chart


This chart captures the past, present, and future of large area deployable space structures. All structures are drawn to scale.

Every structure on this chart

  • is a deployable structure (at least one dimension must increase after unfolding)
  • is an independent deployable structure (multiple separately deployed structures are not listed as a single, larger structure)
  • has its performance grow with its area (and not just length)
