Abstract

The LIVE (Lightening Experiment for Venus Exploration) payload is a selected payload for the future Venus orbiter mission of India. The payload utilizes the electromagnetic signals, emitted by lightning events, for the detection of the same. The detection of the EM signal is achieved by a dipole V-antenna. As the antenna size is higher for stowage in the launch phase and for meeting the stiffness requirement, a deployment mechanism is needed. In this seminar, the various configurations and conceptualization of a deployable antenna system shall be presented for meeting the requirements of the payload. Also, the design philosophy for the payload development shall be briefly presented.
