Abstract

For the past three years, our team has been developing, refining, and maturing a unique solar array technology known as Stretched Lens Array SquareRigger (SLASR). As described in this paper, SLASR offers an unprecedented portfolio of performance metrics, including: Areal Power Density = 300-400 W/m2 Specific Power = 300 W/kg - 500 W/kg Stowed Power = 80-120 kW/m3 Scalable Array Power = 4 kW to 100's of kW's Super-Insulated Small Cell Circuit = High-Voltage (300-600 V) Operation at Low Mass Penalty Super-Shielded Small Cell Circuit = Excellent Radiation Hardness at Low Mass Penalty 85% Cell Area Savings = 66% to 75% Lower Array Cost per Watt than One-Sun Array Modular, Scalable, & Mass-Producible at MW's per Year Using Existing Capacities
