Abstract

In the past decades, extensive researches about space structures have taken place in Japan from conceptual studies to practical mission studies. The recent holy grail of space structures is to establish the ultra-light, large and stable space structure with high precision and high packaging efficiency that is "Gossamer" space structure. This paper presents the summary of Japanese recent activities for the past several years for space structures research, and they are classified into five major divisions in this survey paper; concept, design, application, analysis, and experiment/test. On the whole, membrane and cable mesh structures have been studied intensively.
