SolAero Technologies manufactures compound semiconductor multi-junction solar cells and packaged assemblies. This solar cell technology achieves the highest commercially available performance level, offering a density exceeding 350 W/m2 under standard terrestrial test conditions and up to 600W/m2 under high altitude low temperature conditions.
These solar cells are very lightweight and can be integrated into flexible, molded, and environmentally rugged packages to suit the application. Specific power can exceed 5.0 W/g depending on the cell configuration and operating environment.
This solar cell technology powers the majority of NASA spacecraft and many commercial satellites produced today. The manufacturing technology, infrastructure, and systems are therefore highly developed and application tested. An installed and operational manufacturing capacity of nearly 500 kW/yr is available to meet quick-turn demand.
