Deployable reflector structure patent application by Martin M Mikulas ( )
2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The present invention relates to large reflector structures for deployment in outer space. Referring to FIGS. 1A - 1D, a deployable reflector structure according to the invention comprises a number of movable reflector panels pivotably supported on rigid arms. Several such arms are pivotably connected to a central structure, so the arms can move in starburst fashion from a packaged stage, where all arms are vertical, to a deployed stage, where all of the arms are horizontal. All of the movable reflector panels are maintained at a predetermined angle to an axis of the reflector structure when the arms are pivoted, so the reflector panels are stacked tightly on top of each other in the packaged stage. Simple mechanisms are provided for avoiding interference between panels on different arms in the packaged stage, and for fitting the movable panels together like tiles in the deployed stage. The movable arms act as a stabilizing sub-structure for the reflecting panels in a deployable reflector structure according to the invention, so a highly accurate reflecting surface is assured. The invention also provides very compact packaging of the reflector structure in its packaged stage. A reflecting structure of 20 meter deployed diameter will fit in the cargo bay of the U.S. Space Shuttle."--P. i

The Precision Expandable Radar Calibration Sphere (PERCS) With Applications for Laser Imaging and Ranging ( )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The Naval Research Laboratory will provide an orbiting calibration sphere to be used with ground-based laser imaging telescopes and HF radio systems. The Precision Expandable Radar Calibration Sphere (PERCS) is a practical, reliable, high-performance HF calibration sphere and laser imaging target to orbit at about 600 km altitude. The sphere will be made of a spherical wire frame with aspect independent radar cross section in the 3 to 35 MHz frequency range. The necessary launch vehicle to place the PERCS in orbit will be provided by the Department of Defense Space Test Program. The expandable calibration target has a stowed diameter of 1 meter and a fully deployed diameter of 10.2 meters. A separate deployment mechanism is provided for the sphere. After deployment the Precision Expandable Radar Calibration Sphere (PERCS) with 180 vertices will be in a high inclination orbit to scatter radio pulses from a number of ground systems, including (1) over-the-horizon (OTH) radars operated by the United States and Australia; (2) high power HF facilities such as HAARP in Alaska, EISCAT in Norway, and Arecibo in Puerto Rico; (3) the chain of high latitude SuperDARN radars used for auroral region mapping; and (4) HF direction finding for Navy ships. With the PERCS satellite, the accuracy of HF radars can be periodically checked for range, elevation, and azimuth errors. In addition, each of the 360 vertices on the PERCS sphere will support an optical retro-reflector for operations with ground laser facilities used to track satellites. The ground laser systems will be used to measure the precise location of the sphere within one cm accuracy and will provide the spatial orientation of the sphere as well as the rotation rate. The Department of Defense facilities that can use the corner-cube reflectors on the PERCS include (1) the Air Force Maui Optical Site (AMOS), (2) the

[Chuck Hoberman lecture] ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Chuck Hoberman describes how all kinds of new theories are emerging in fields other than architecture. He discusses how this affects the architectural designs of the present and the future. His focus is not on form but on transformation
Hoberman sphere transforming globe ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
An icosadodecahedron using 20 triangles and 12 pentagons with multiple locking joints to expand from a diameter of 9.5 inches to a maximum of 30 inches. It can be used to demonstrate mathematical and geometric principles and has applications in both architecture and mechanical engineering. The design was produced by Chuck Hoberman
