Abstract
The structure of the micro-satellite is exquisite and compact which requires the long whip antenna to be tucked into the specific deployable mechanism. This paper analyses the advantages and disadvantages of commonly used the swing arm deployable mechanism and on this basis we design a kind of rotating disk deployable mechanism. By the mechanics analysis and comparison of this two mechanism, the superiority of the new mechanism on the mechanical and dynamic performance was proved. This design and the conclusion has great significance in futher research.
