The space industry is eager to have the advanced technology of large space structures composed of trusses, cables and meshes. These space structures will deploy on orbit for different space missions. The important scientific basis of the technology is the nonlinear dynamic modeling, analysis and control of those space structures during their deployment and service. In this study, many space deployable structures (such as satellites antenna and spinning solar sail) are described by using the absolute nodal coordinate formulation (ANCF), and the huge set of equations of motion are solve by high efficient parallel generalized-alpha method. Some numerical results are also validated by experiment results.
