A spacecraft includes an articulating sunshield assembly that is capable of simultaneously performing thermal control functions and solar torque balancing for the spacecraft. The sunshield assembly includes a pair of shield members that can be controllably positioned as the spacecraft orbits about a primary body. Control functionality is provided for periodically adjusting the positions of the shield members to maintain a neutral solar torque stability condition for the spacecraft. In one embodiment, solar torque balancing is performed in each of three i...


1. A method for deploying at least a first shield member connected to a spacecraft body, comprising:providing a spacecraft that includes a spacecraft body and at least a first shield member connected to said spacecraft body; and deploying said first shield member relative to said spacecraft body in space including substantially co-locating a center of mass of said spacecraft with a solar radiation center of pressure in each of a pitch direction, a yaw direction and a roll direction by at least using movement of at least first portions of said first shiel...
