Abstract
Triton will demonstrate a piezo energy harvesting system (PEH) for a cubesat or similar small satellite platform that complements existing photovoltaic elements, trickle-charging the spacecrafts batteries in periods of eclipse when photovoltaic output is low, thereby reducing the required spacecraft battery capacity.
