Lightweight Integrated Solar Array and Transceiver (LISA-T)

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Lightweight Integrated Solar Array and Transceiver (LISA-T)
NASA's Lightweight Integrated Solar Array and Transceiver, LISA-T will develop, test, and demonstrate a deployable structure on which lightweight photovoltaic devices and transceiver elements are embedded to provide both power and communications for a small scale spacecraft. The system will provide a >2x increase in power available to a 3U satellite, as well as, a >2x increase in specific power generation (Watts/kilogram) and a >2x enhancement of stowed volume (Watts/cubic-meter) compared to state-of-the-art arrays. The team will also demonstrate a path to reduced array costs and the deployment of communication devices both with and without solar devices. More »
