Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Auburn University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 07-2
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

ENTECH, Auburn, NASA, and others have recently developed a new space photovoltaic array called the Stretched Lens Array (SLA), offering unprecedented performance (>80 kW/cu.m. stowed power, >300 W/sq.m. areal power, and >300 W/kg specific power) and cost-effectiveness (>75% savings in $/W compared to planar arrays). SLA achieves these outstandi...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Auburn University

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA05-T013
Budget: 09/13/06 - 09/13/08

The DOD conducts strategic space missions in order to protect national security. Some of these missions fly in high-radiation orbits, where the radiation damage to the array limits lifetime, therefore compromising mission capability. In addition, rogue nations or terrorists might someday detonate a nuclear weapon at high altitude, hence adding...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Auburn University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 06-1
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

Over the past six years, ENTECH, Auburn, NASA, and other organizations have developed a new space photovoltaic array called the Stretched Lens Array (SLA), which offers unprecedented performance (e.g., >80 kW/cu.m. stowed power, >300 W/sq.m. areal power, and >300 W/kg specific power in the very near term) and cost-effectiveness (>75% savings in ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 05-2
Budget: 01/01/05 - 12/31/05

The proposed innovation is a wireless laser power transmission system employing a dual-use photovoltaic concentrator at the receiving end. Specifically, the laser receiver/converter employs thin stretched-membrane Fresnel lenses to focus continuous or pulsed laser light onto small photovoltaic cells, thereby reducing cell cost and improving cell...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 97-1
Budget: 01/01/97 - 12/31/97

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: SDIO92-005
Budget: 01/01/92 - 12/31/92

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: SDIO91-005
Budget: 07/10/91 - 01/10/92

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA86-005
Budget: 01/01/88 - 12/31/88

UNDER A PREVIOUS RESEARCH PHASE, A NEW APPROACH TO PHOTOVOLTAIC CONCENTRATOR ARRAY FOR SPACE POWER APPLICATIONS WAS DESIGNED, FABRICATED, AND TESTED USING A GALLIUM ARSENIDE CELL AND A PRISMATIC CELL COVER TO VERIFY THE PERFORMANCE LEVELS PREDICTED FOR THE COVERED CELL. THE OVERALL FEASIBILITY OF THIS LIGHTWEIGHT, MINI-DOME FRESNEL LENS PHOTOVO...
