Short summary
This paper proposes a novel origami-based deployable mechanism, which can be deployed from the cuboid folded configuration to the cylindrical configuration. In comparison with the reported deployable mechanism composed of links, the hinge arrangement of the proposed mechanism makes it easier to achieve a higher stiffness. It is applied to the design of a parabolic cylindrical deployable antenna, and a scaled prototype of the antenna is constructed to verify the feasibility of the design.
