LSS was founded in December 2012 as a spin-out from the Technical University of Munich (TUM), Germany.


OriFlex® (origami folding of flexible reflective surface FlexRS®) is a proprietary technology of Large Space Structures GmbH for deployable reflectors based on our FlexRS® family of technology. It is designed for satellite applications, where volume is an expensive resource and a large antenna reflector could not be launched or would be too expensive. OriFlex® complements our other technologies of deployable reflectors and focuses on small to medium size platforms - for reflectors of 0.5m to 5m in diameter for small satellites and CubeSats - for operation at L, S, C, X, Ku, Ka-bands and up to at least 60 GHz depending on the FlexRS® technology used.

Building on our proven FlexRS® family of reflective surface and more than 20 years of research on carbon fiber reinforced silicone (CFRS), and even more in the fields of deployable reflectors, OriFlex® technology will enable low cost, high performance reflectors for applications such as CubeSats and small sats for miniGEO, SAR imaging, mega constellations, science missions and others.
