Astradyne has developed an innovative technology named FRET (flexible, reinforced, electronics with textile) which reinforces Flex PCBs (flexible printed circuit boards) with textile material and acts as enabler for a variety of deployable systems.

The first application identified by Astradyne is SolarCube, an off-the-shelf, origami-inspired solar panel aimed at solving the limitations of conventional solar panels for space applications, such as small satellites. SolarCube has a stowed to deployed surface ratio of 1:50 which allows it to greatly increase the energy production capacity of spacecraft while reducing its volume.

Astradyne will soon expand the use of its innovation to other deployable structures, such as antennas and habitation modules.
