Abstract:

The goal of this Phase II Small Business Innovation Research SBIR effort was to take the conceptual design begun under the Phase I SBIR flight test planning effort and accomplish the preliminary design of a subscale inflatable solar collector system. The preliminary design was then to be experimentally verified and a detail design generated. The inflatable portion of the collector was to be an adaptation of the inflatable collector produced on the Deployable Solar Collector Experiment. The entire collector system was to be designed to be packaged into a Get Away Special Canister launched from the space shuttle. No experimentation was done in this effort. This final report covers the preliminary design and the analysis supporting that design.
