Abstract
Design conception, driving mechanism, latch and unlatch mechanism were carried out herein for a highly synchronized deployment space mast. A prototype mast was built to verify conception design. Modal analysis, frequency analysis and transient analysis were completed to evaluate dynamic behavior. Deployment dynamic analysis algorithm, complex multi-body constrained system, was developed. Deployment test and its performance verification were conducted. Suggestions to improve are presented in accordance with finding.
