This paper presents a novel deployable hexagonal prism module for parabolic cylinder antennas that exhibit characteristics of geometric scalability. The hexagonal prism module consists of six basic rib mechanisms distributed along the axis and parabolic directions of the parabolic cylinder. The basic rib mechanism along the axis direction is designed, and the position of each member in the deployed state is calculated according to the geometric relationships at the folded state. The basic rib mechanism along the parabolic direction is designed to ensure that the mechanism can be fully folded. The degree of freedom of basic loop mechanisms consisting of four basic rib mechanisms due to the splice of multiple modules is analyzed. The degree of freedom of the proposed hexagonal prism module is verified through simulations and experiments of a deployable mechanism composed of three hexagonal prism modules. The simulation and experiment results show that the proposed hexagonal prism module can offer synchronized and coordinated movement during the deployment process.
