This paper presents the development and the ultimate results of the qualification activities of the 12 m unfurlable reflector assembly of the large deployable antenna (LDA), jointly developed by the Prime Contractor: g on a European technology. The paper also dedicates a section to a flight experiment (FE), which is a follow on activity of the LDA qualification, for the in orbit verification of the LDA performance. The final section of the paper provides an overview of the LDA possible applications at system level.
