Deployable structures are mobile assemblies which do not aim motion but to attain different configurations depending on the service requirements. These structures are widely used in space applications due to storage limitations of the launch vehicles. The large diversity of design alternatives should be evaluated in design of deployable parts of spacecrafts. This study aims to present design alternatives of antennas, masts and solar panels of space devices. Also use of spatial linkages in deployable structure designs is discussed.
