The technology provides the following strategic and cost-effective innovations for lattice structures construction:
- Using hollow cross-sections for both metal and composite lattice designs. Any kind of bar or profile can be employed.
- Full utilization of the outstanding strength and stiffness of unidirectional carbon fibre composites.
- Versatile assembly; tools, bolts, gusset plates, glue, or welding are not required. Ideal for fast and simple in-orbit (or submarine) construction.
These innovations may achieve up to 4 fold mass reductions in Space anisogrid structures of modern rocket interstages and up to 2 fold in lattice towers for wind power generation.
