Abstract:

The report describes an investigation conducted to determine the technical feasibility of utilizing large expandable structures which can be joined together to form a Floating Island Base. The objectives in using expandable structures in this application were to develop a floating base which could be packaged, transported, and erected employing a minimum of time and effort. The missions for a base of this type would be of a temporary nature and therefore the island must also be capable of being repackaged for redeployment.
