Abstract : An assembly of collapsible quasi-corner reflectors which when folded and compressed forms a small, compact and easily deployable device for reflecting electromagnetic radiation. Upon being deployed, self-contained spring action expands the assembly into a long series spiral of side-by-side open pyramidal cells each having a somewhat square aperture and four planar triangular walls whose angularity and flat interior metallic surfaces provide enhanced reflectivity.
