Deployment of a boom for nano satellites

The boom is used to minimise the effects of the magnetic fields from the electronics onboard the nano satellite by placing the magnetometer one meter away from the onboard electronics. The boom is deployed within one second by releasing the strain energy stored in the coiled arms of the boom.
