The challenge of this task is to develop low mass and high efficiency solar arrays for small spacecraft missions to deep space.
This task will develop advanced high-efficiency radiation-hard solar cells with LILT capability for deep space small spacecraft missions. It will determine LILT & radiation performance of baseline advanced solar cells; modify advanced cell designs to optimize for LILT and radiation; fabricate optimized advanced cells & demonstrate performance targetsMore »
This technology -Reduces power system mass, area and volume by ~20% -Reduces solar array cost by ~40% -Improves power generation in LILT/radiation environments -Extends capability of deep-space solar powered missionsMore »
