ISAS/JAXA is studying a deployment method using centrifugal force for solar sail mission. In this paper, the clover type sail is investigated. The deployment sequence consists of two stages. In order to analyze the motion of the dynamic deployment, S-310 flight experiment is conducted. In this experiment, the clover type sail of 10 m diameter is deployed dynamically. Numerical simulations by multi-particle model are also conducted to analyze the complicated motion. The experiment and simulation results are compared with each other to validate the analytical model. On the other hand, we schedule to conduct a balloon experiment. The clover type sail of 20 m diameter is deployed statically. The mechanisms for first stage and second stage deployments are introduced.
