CubeSat GaAs Solar Panel

GaAs Solar Panel

NanoAvionics GaAs (Triple junction GaInP/GaInAs/Ge epitaxial structure) solar arrays are made of high performance triple junction space grade solar cells that enable missions with high power requirements.

These solar cells reach up to 29 % efficiency and have an integrated by-pass diode to protect in series connected solar cell string from shadowing effects.

Solar cells are assembled using NASA qualified low outgassing adhesive materials in clean room environment.

Available upon request:

  • Deployables
  • Surface mounted wire cutters
  • Integrated magnetorquers
  • Attitude estimation sensors
