Low cost, lightweight, high power solar arrays with compact packaging is a key enabling technology for meeting a variety of NASA missions such as solar electric propulsion, outer planetary, or crew exploration missions. The automated THINS ZTJ approach is an ideal technology for meeting these needs, projecting a specific power improvement of greater than a factor of 3X, and an improved volumetric efficiency when rolled for launch by a factor of 4X compared to today's solar arrays. The approach additionally prepares for the low cost integration of IMM solar cells as they become economically feasible. Such improvements are needed to allow a high power system up to 300kW to be packaged into a single launch, avoiding expensive and risky on-orbit assembly. The THINS Array also has the advantages of improved electromagnetic shielding because of the continuity of coverglass materials and the ability to create a continuous grounded, shielded enclosure. Such a technology can be enabling for high performance electric and magnetic field instruments often used on NASA spacecraft, such as THEMIS, MMS, and Maven. (MMS solar arrays, in fact, have incorporated superstrate technology previously developed on a NASA Phase III SBIR from Vanguard). Commercial spacecraft have trended towards higher power in recent years, with spacecraft prime power requirements growing from 5kW to over 20kW. Additional power provides additional functionality for military spacecraft, and additional revenue for commercial spacecraft, but is limited in practice to the 20kW level by the maximum achievable power that can be obtained with conventional rigid panel planar technology. The implementation of a low mass, low volume, low cost array has application to a broad spectrum of military and commercial users who currently are restricted by the mass, volume, and cost of conventional approaches.
