Abstract:

Every time a structure is deployed, it will have a slightly different deployed shape, and this deployment-to-deployment variation is part of the shape error budget. This shape variation can be estimated by combining the variation in every deformable part, or by testing the full structure. In the latter case, evaluating the deployment repeatability builds upon the testing or analysis of deployment kinematics Chapter 6 and adds repetition.
