DCUBED's 1U 100W Origami Solar Array aims to deliver a Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) solar array solution for NewSpace, enabling high-performance applications while requiring only minimal stowed volume during launch.
This is a paradigm shift in the industry – now, extremely power-intensive space mission can be more easily realized using small satellites and nanosatellites. Using DCUBED’s 1U 100 Origami Solar Array, such missions are no longer exclusively possible via cost-intensive large satellites with high deployment risk and long lead times.
DCUBED addresses this need by delivering a COTS-based, scalable, and deployable solar array for small satellites and NanoSats, stowable in less than a 1U CubeSat unit, and capable of generating 100W of power at EOL (End of Life). An In-Orbit Demonstration (IOD) mission for this system is scheduled for 2023.
- Stowed Volume: 90 x 90 x 90mm (1U)
- Mass: < 2kg
- EOL Power: 100W (5 years lifetime)
- Bus voltage: 14.7 to 24V
- Redundant Actuation
- Compliant with the CubeSat standard
- Compatible with standard CubeSat dispensers
