Automatic unfurling of European Large Deployable Reflector successfully demonstrated

ESA, HPS GmbH and LSS GmbH have reached an important milestone in the development of the European Large Deployable Reflector or LDR.

The team has demonstrated the automatic motorised deployment of the engineering model of the eight-metre wide antenna reflector.

The design, build and testing of this full-size engineering model is a significant step forward in the development of the European LDR that will be carried on the Copernicus Imaging Microwave Radiometer (CIMR) mission.
