Title (EN) DEPLOYABLE REFLECTOR FOR AN ANTENNA
(FR) RÉFLECTEUR DÉPLOYABLE POUR UNE ANTENNE
Abstract:
(EN) A deployable reflector for an antenna is disclosed. The deployable reflector comprises a deployable membrane configured to adopt a pre-formed shape in a deployed configuration, and an electrically conductive mesh disposed on a surface of the membrane wherein the electrically conductive mesh is configured to permit relative lateral movement between the electrically conductive mesh and the membrane during deployment of the reflector. In the deployed configuration, the conductive mesh adopts the shape of the membrane and forms a reflective surface of the reflector. A method of manufacturing the deployable reflector is also disclosed.
(FR) L'invention concerne un réflecteur déployable destiné à une antenne. Le réflecteur déployable comprend une membrane déployable conçue pour adopter une forme préformée dans une configuration déployée, et une maille électroconductrice disposée sur une surface de la membrane, la maille électroconductrice étant conçue pour permettre un mouvement latéral relatif entre la maille électroconductrice et la membrane pendant le déploiement du réflecteur. Dans la configuration déployée, la maille conductrice adopte la forme de la membrane et forme une surface réfléchissante du réflecteur. L'invention concerne également un procédé de fabrication du réflecteur déployable.
