Manufacturing of inflatable structure

During the last couple of days, Adnan Mahmood worked on the optimization of the manufacturing techniques for the deployable part of SAM. Various structures were manufactured and tested in the vacuum chamber of the physic's department of the University of Strathclyde. The first full scale structure is scheduled to be finished until mid April. A first mating between the cube satellite structure and the deployable structure will commence shortly after.
