Optimast:

Made In Space's first commercial product for large-structure manufacturing in open space, Optimast is capable of additively manufacturing large truss structures of indefinite length. 

The system makes space-optimized booms, trusses and long-axis antennas of indefinite length in less than 10 days -- and up to 80 percent cheaper than traditional structures.

Applications:

 
  • Large trusses and booms manufactured can support larger satellite reflectors and antennas

  • Optimast can support a variety of customer missions of varying complexity

  • The system can also be used to make structures such as space precision interferometers
