Deployable composite boom technology advances In space construction

Introducing the concept of a Deployable Composite Boom (DCB) based mast to support Operations at the lunar poles

Using multioriented carbon fibres, NASA engineers teams manage to create light composite booms with a wide range of original applications including building on lunar poles, communication support and solar sail structures for spacial propulsion using light radiation pressure.

JEC Group is a non-profit organization entirely dedicated to promoting composite materials and fostering their applications globally. Publisher of the JEC Composites Magazine, the industry's reference magazine, JEC organizes several events around the world, including JEC World, the leading international exhibition dedicated to composites and their applications, which takes place annually in Paris. JEC media, events and digital channels connect a global community of professionals from the composites industry and beyond, to enable knowledge transfer, create networking opportunities, and highlight innovation.
