Abstract : A multiple-support suspension for a fully rotatable, parabolic radiotelescope mirror, providing it with high mechanical rigidity in any position in space, can be realized by various construction designs. The layout can be accomplished in the form of intermediate supporting construction, in a system of mutually parallel and perpendicular supporting elements having two axes of symmetry in the plan. The scheme can be a system of mutually parallel supporting elements. For example, a multiple support suspension design can be carried out in the form of a supporting rod pyramid (cyclical plan), two rod pyramids or in the form of a combination of rod pyramid and intermediate support construction.
