Re: Ultraviolet Degradation

Hi Barry.  Many thanks for your comments regarding an antenna restraint
for use in CUBESATS.  Normally, the antennas are restrained by a nylon
fishline surrounding the satellite that is cut by a hot wire upon command.
We were looking for a material that eventually would free the antennas
only IF the hot wire command were to fail--an eventual backup to you see!
