Title: High Voltage, Lightweight, Conformal, Integrated, Photovoltaic Modules for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Contract: N68335-11-C-0176
Award Amount: $100,000.00
 

Abstract:

This Phase I effort will demonstrate a thin, conformal solar module(1 cm x 1 cm) composed of either GaAs or Si micro-cells packaged in an elastomeric film. This module will utilize unique mechanical designs, including non-planar interconnects, and thin micro-cells (<50 microns thick) and will achieve>10% efficiency and>10% stretchability while providing output of>25V. This effort will provide a plan and possible routes to develop 1 sq meter modules with energy output sufficient to replace current lithium ion batteries.
