Abstract

This paper presents two origami inspired concepts for sunshields for a deployable X-ray space telescope. Analytical models of the fold layout and sunshield deployment have been derived, and these models have been used to match the sunshield design to a set of geometric constraints. To validate the design, a proof-of-concept physical model of the optimized analytical design was constructed at 1:10 scale.
