Lightweight IMM Multi-Junction Photovoltaic Flexible Blanket Assembly, Phase I

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

Deployable Space Systems (DSS) and EMCORE as a key subcontractor will focus the proposed SBIR program on the creation and optimization of a lightweight ~33% efficient IMM multi-junction photovoltaic flexible blanket assembly specifically for future NASA Space Science missions that demand ultra-lightweight and high voltage operability. The proposed IMM PV flexible blanket assembly when coupled to an optimized structural platform will produce revolutionary array-system-level performance in terms of high specific power (>500 W/kg BOL at the array level, or >1000 W/kg BOL at the blanket assembly level), lightweight, high deployed stiffness, high deployed strength, compact stowage volume (>50 kW/m3 BOL), reliability, modularity, adaptability, affordability, and rapid commercial readiness. Once successfully validated through the proposed Phase 1 and Phase 2 programs, DSS's lightweight IMM PV blanket assembly technology will provide incredible performance improvements over current state-of-the art, and in many cases will be mission-enabling for future NASA and non-NASA applications.
