Dynamics of the orbital deployment of an elastic ring-shaped antenna

  • A. E. Zakrzhevskii
  • V. S. Khoroshilov

A generalized mathematical model of an unguided spacecraft that carries an elastic body of variable geometry (a deployable ring-shaped antenna) is constructed. Its dynamics is simulated numerically
