    In space mission, a new paradigm of a large and ultra-light weight extendible structure will bring many possibilities to develop space technologies. A space-inflatable structure is one of possibilities of enabling breakthrough technology. In this study, a space inflatable actuated rod (SPINAR) has been developed as an ultra-light one-dimensional extendible structure driven by an inflatable tube. Since an inflatable structure can generate the force to extend other extendible structures, the concept of SPINAR can be applied to an actuator for space extendible and deployable structures. This paper presents some overview of possibilities by using the concept of SPINAR on an application for a recent planned power generation tower system in the possible Moon project of Japan.
