Deployable Structures

LoadPath specializes in the design, analysis, fabrication, and testing of advanced deployable structural systems to satisfy a wide range of applications and precision levels, and varying in size from CubeSat booms to large antenna systems. We also design, fabricate, and supply flexible composite strain energy components for integration into customer architectures. We can provide solutions for deployable structure architectures, from requirement derivation to flight hardware delivery.
