FIRST-FLEX-C&G

FIRST-FLEX (ESA Artes C&G)

Project acronym: FIRST-FLEX-C&G

Project full title: Technology and Product Development of First-Surface Flexible Optical Solar Reflectors

Funding: the project is financially supported by the European Space Agency through the Artes C&G program

Area: Space Technologies

Topic
Materials for the thermal control of spacecrafts
Objectives
Complete the development of the FIRST-FLEX technology and bring it to qualification for GEO missions.
Role of CREO
Project coordinator and owner of the technology
Solution / Technology
The technology is the same studied in FIRST-FLEX ARTES 5.1. Here we focus on poly-imide films and develop solutions for a real product: reproducible high rate deposition of the coating on large areas; integration of perforated interconnects to establish electrical contacts between the two faces of the film; lamination of the film with a conductive transfer tape.
