GaAs Solar Panels

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.
